This Sunday you have a chance to make your papa truly proud, as Downtown’s Chichen Itza is making it hot with its second annual habanero eating contest at 2:00 P.M. in Mercado Paloma. Anyone who thinks they have a tongue of titanium can register in person at the restaurant on Sunday to eat the Yucatan-born pepper. The person that eats the most chilies without melting in their seat will receive a $50 gift certificate as compensation for losing their cool. [Chichen Itza]
