Didn’t see that burrito place in Huntington Beach that offered to pick up the check if you finished one of their Hindenburgs, but we were pleased that Beth’s Cafe in Seattle got a mention. We’ve been there before and couldn’t understand the 12-egg omelet. Is it for sharing? We wondered. No, turns out it’s just for the truly ambitious:
We didn’t see any Bay Area offerings on the list, but then, we can’t think of any local eating challenges. Can you?
