TooJay's held a corned beef contest in Palm Beach Gardens, FL on Saint Patrick's Days from 2010-2012. They will not hold a contest this year but hope to bring the contest back in 2014. If that event's trend in prize money for professionals over the past three years continues (2011: $20,000 | 2012: $10,000 | 2013 $0), then MLE eaters will need to pay $10,000 to compete in 2014.
It is now one month until Saint Patrick's Day, and there has been no official announcement about TooJay's corned beef sandwich eating contest which has taken place in Palm Beach Gardens, FL on March 17 from 2010-2012.
