Pig-Out With a Power Eater

When: Sat., Sept. 18 2010

Scott Bickel is a Cleveland renaissance man for all times: noted author, former Marine, self-taught magician, piano maestro — and tonight, world-class power eater. Inspired by the festivities at this summer's annual hot-dog-eating barf fest at Coney Island, Bickel has rededicated himself to making buffet lines fear his presence. You know Adam Richman from Man vs. Food? Bickel took on the same challenge at Melt Bar & Grilled and made TV boy look like a toddler hiding his green beans. Tonight he's seeking new glory at Cleats in Westlake: Beginning at 7 p.m. — and finishing before 7:20, mind you — Bickel will down Cleats' imposing eight-pound burger. Why? Because he can. "You will never meet a human being as determined as I am," 20-year-old Bickel helpfully informs us. "One day I will go on TV and win the Nathan's hot-dog contest and bring Cleveland victory." Live the dream along with him tonight at 27200 Detroit Rd. in Westlake. Call 440-250-0200 for all the gory details. — Erich Burnett
