Scotch Egg contest planned at Baker Street

Tulsa will crown its Scotch Egg Eating Champion on Saturday, August 11 when Baker Street Pub & Grill (6620 South Memorial Drive) hosts its first-ever Scotch Egg eating contest and silent auction.

The contest, sponsored by Guinness, begins at 6 p.m. and proceeds from the silent auction benefit the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America, the only national volunteer health agency dedicated to the fight against this incurable neuromuscular disorder.

Twenty participants will have 12 minutes to eat seven Scotch Eggs topped with Coleman’s Mustard.  The participant who finishes their eggs first will earn a cash prize of $250.  There is no entry fee to participate in the contest. Contestants must be 21 or older.

A British pub favorite, Scotch Eggs consist of a hard-boiled egg encased in pork, coated in breadcrumbs and deep fried.

Silent auction items include a trip to Kansas City for a Kansas City Royals’ baseball game; a trip to Dallas for the Red Bull Soapbox Derby; tickets to an upcoming event at Tulsa’s BOK Center and more.

To enter, pick up a registration form at Baker Street Pub & Grill, 6620 South Memorial Drive.  Or, click here to reach their Facebook page.  For those that have never enjoyed Scotch Eggs, see photo to the right provided by Anna Drake.

Tulsa Today last wrote about Baker Street during the royal wedding where, even if you did not get an invitation to attend in person, you could still be part of William and Kate’s special day.  That Friday, April 29, Baker Street served brunch and Bloody Mary’s at 5 am as royal watchers prepared to witness and share the fun festivities.

As an added bonus, Baker Street awarded couples named William and Kate with a $25 gift card to the pub and a crown and tiara set.  Even though our intrepid reporter did not awaken at that hour to cover the event, we heard it was great fun. Yes, this is one of our favorite watering spots on South Memorial – good service, moderate prices, quality food, fun crowd.  See you there.
