ADDISON, Texas, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, June 7th Bar Louie locations around the country will host their annual "Rock the Tot" tater tot eating contest. The contest will be broken into two parts, team relay races and the solo race. Each location will begin their relay race at 8 pm, followed immediately by the solo race to crown their local "Rock the Tot" champion. All festivities are leading up to a night of live entertainment and celebration.
The relay race teams will consist of four persons lined up with one pound of tater tots in front them. At the sound of the buzzer, the first team member will eat their pound of tots as fast as they can. The second team member will start their pound when the first team member as finished, and so on.

Solo competitors will face off in a challenge to eat as many tater tots possible in six minutes. Contestants are allowed to have any drink of their choice during that time. At the end of the six minutes a winner will be determined and declared the "Rock the Tot" champion. All winners will be declared locally, with BL Restaurant Operations, LLC verifying the results after the local competitions are completed.
