Tim and Pat in action at this months' RibMania event.
The fun continues tomorrow, when the pair face a Bacon Bomb challenge at Paddy Long's and a Monster Burger at Jake Melnick's Corner Tap. Then, on Sunday, Tim and Pat take on the Dagwood Challenge at Lucky's Wrigleyville.
Drink specials will be available at each venue for eating fans who want to cheer on the Glutton Force Five team and send them off to Coney Island feeling loved. Even better: the Glutton Force Five food truck will make an appearance at Sunday's after party, where the first 50 people get free Mega BBQ Bowls, one of the truck's specialties.
There's a feel-good element to all this gorging, by the way; each of the challenge locations will donate a portion of their evening's sales or a cash prize to the Chicago Food Bank should any of the standing records be broken. Given Bertoletti and Brown's recent performances on the competitive eating circuit, we're betting records will most certainly be smashed.
You can find all the times and addresses for this weekend's Gluttony Tour 2012 on the Glutton Force Five website.
One final word of advice: don't stand too close to the table or bring a plastic poncho, unless you want to be covered in glutton run-off.
You have been warned.
