Weekend Recap: Red Hot Food & Beer Contest

What would you do to win tickets with a limo ride to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers tonight in Boston? Well last week the Mews Tavern and WBRU ran the Red Hot Food & Beer contest. All month long they were collecting raffle tickets for each Gansett. Then on May 2 they had a hot pepper eating contest during the Gansett pint night. Zac Leone proved himself by eating 8 habanero chilis. Those are some of the hottest in the world.  Could you imagine. Then they pulled the Matt DaCosta’s name from the raffle to win the tickets. Check out the rest of the photos below.
