Bertoletti's Last Stand at The Alamo

It is rumored, but not yet confirmed, that the La Costena jalapeno pepper-eating contest will take place at The Alamo some time around Cinco de Mayo. If this turns out to be correct, Sonya Thomas may play Santa Anna while Pat Bertoletti stands in for James Bowie.

Last fall, Sonya upset reigning champion Bertoletti, beating him by a solid margin. This year, Bertoletti has vowed to regain his crown.

For the past several years the contest has been held at Mi Tierra restaurant in Chicago (whose mole, by the way, is unparalleled). A venue and date change may occur this year, however.
