The Root Cafe will be hosting what they promise is their first-annual hot pepper eating contest at the restaurant during the Arkansas Local Food Network's South Main food tour on Sunday, Oct. 14. Torture time starts at 4 p.m., with contestants chowing down on a host of hot varieties, from "that's spicy!" to "My God, why have you forsaken me?" including Jalapeno, Cayenne, Serrano, Seven Pot, Maga Ghost, Giant Ghost, the dreaded Trinidad Scorpion. The survivor who comes out on top will receive a $50 cash prize, with prizes for bronze and silver as well.

Those who want to compete can sign up at the Root Cafe, by calling (501) 414-0423, or by emailing theroot@therootcafe.com.
