Calgary Media Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Cinco de Taco Fish Taco Eating Challenge

Press Release ( - CALGARY, Alberta - Apr 29, 2016 - “May 5th”, or literally, “Five of May” is a celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 but in Calgary, it’s going to be a battle like no other.

Joey’s Urban Restaurants, famous for their #epicfishtaco and Fish Taco World Record established by Joey Chestnut (@joeyjaws) in Winnipeg in 2014, is at it again, this time pitting Calgary celebrities and radio media against each other in a 5-minute eat-off.

“This event is going to establish a record for the common man, and woman in the world of Fish taco eating,” said Joey’s Vice President of Marketing Dave Holland. “Joey Chestnut is not your typical eater. He’s abnormal, an eating machine. He proved it by whipping two teams of four combined in 2014.”

Though Joey Chestnut will not be competing, there will be other famous people taking on the 5-minute Fish Taco challenge – all in support of the Calgary Food Bank. It is the finale to YYC Taco Fiesta a week-long Calgary, Alberta-based celebration of all things Tacos.

Mike Tarasko, Morning Show Producer @660News, Dan Chen, an announcer on @CJAY92 and straight thuggin’ foodie twenty-pho/seven, Katie Summer, an awkward morning radio girl on @ampcalgary and Kyle MacQuarrie, a man who markets with his mouth, are some of the 8 contestants who will be representing their respective media outlets in this fundraising event.

“We are excited to have these celebs join in on the festivities,” added Holland. “Five minutes is all any normal person can really eat for anyways so this will be a ball to watch.”

Cinco de Taco takes place on Cinco de Mayo at Joey’s Urban Restaurant at 4501 – 17th Ave SE in Calgary at 1 PM. The show is free and all who come with a non-perishable food item donation for the Calgary Food Bank will receive a $5 off coupon for Joey’s Urban!
