GENEVA – Bar Louie in Geneva is looking to set world records during its 6th annual "Rock the Tot" tater-tot eating contest Sept. 19.

Locations across the country will host the annualy contest, which will be broken into two parts: the team relay races and a solo competition. The relay race will take place at 8 p.m., followed by the solo competition, when a "Rock the Tot" champion will be crowned.

Bar Louie is attempting to set a world record for most tater tots eaten simultaneously among all of the restaurant's locations. Those interested in participating will be given a single tater tot to eat at the designated time of 8 p.m.

The relay race teams will consist of four people, who will line up in front of a pound of tater tots. At the sound of the buzzer, the first team member will eat a pound of tots as fast as they can, followed by the second person and so on until every member on the team has eaten a pound of tater tots. The team to finish their four pounds of tots in the quickest time wins four “Rock the Tot” champions T-shirts and free tots for a year at Bar Louie.

Solo competitors will go head-to-head in a challenge to eat as many tater tots as possible in three minutes. At the end of the three minutes a winner will be determined and declared the “Rock the Tot” champion. All winners will be declared locally. Local solo winners will receive a $250 Bar Louie gift card, a trophy, T-shirt and free tater tots for a year.

The top five local winners will be awarded airfare and hotel accommodations to Cleveland, Ohio, to attend the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and compete at Bar Louie Cleveland on Oct. 5 for the ultimate title of “Rock the Tot” national champion. The grand prize winner will receive a $500 cash prize, free tater tots for life, and will have the world record for most tots eaten in three minutes.

Participants should arrive no later than 7:30 pm local time, and are encouraged to bring fans and get creative with costumes.

Bar Louie is located in the Geneva Commons at 1602 Commons Drive, Suite 600, in Geneva.

Registration is going on now at all local Bar Louie locations.To register, stop by the restaurant or visit
