Cheese Lovers Rejoice: StinkFest Returns
Hold your nose, open your mouth.
Stinky BKLYN's fourth annual cheese eating contest, StinkFest, will be held this Sunday, June 27, as part of the Smith Street Fair. But it's not all about the fromage. A 16-foot grandstand will be the stage for eight different Brooklyn bands, including the kids from The School of Rock.
Some 40 competitors will throw down, each with two minutes to eat as much Cantalet as they can muster. Last year's winner, Will Millender, will defend his title and place on the Big Cheese Title Belt, which sits on display at Stinky BKLYN year-round.
