Thursday, Oct. 9, Bar Louie  is holding  it's seventh annual Rock the Tot competition. At this event, basically, competitors stuff their faces with as many delicious tots as they can within in a three-minute time limit. Sound yummy? You can get in on the action.

If you're interested in entering, you've got a couple options. You can go solo in the individual event. If you do that, you're eligible for a wealth of prizes, including a champions t-shirt, Bar Louie gift cards and, the best prize ever, free tots for an entire year. Oh, and the top five individual winners will also be eligible to compete in Cleveland, Ohio for a chance at the Guinness World Record.

If you don't want to go it alone, you can tackle the team challenge, relay style: four people per team tackle a pound of tots in turn. Whichever team has the fastest time is the ultimate winner. Psst, free tots for a year is a prize in this one too.

Deadline for entry into both competitions is 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9. All the rules, forms and officiall prizes are on Bar Louie's Rock the Tot website.

Inexplicably, our Creative Director, Adam McCabe, is a judge for this heated competition. What this entails, we have no clue. Making sure no one stuffs their pockets full of tots? Ensuring that there's no time clock tampering? You'll just have to show up in Thursday to see.

The details:

When: 8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 9 (Get there early if you wanna enter, registration ends at 7:30 p.m.)

Where: Bar Louie, 7335 Sand Lake Road
