Apparently, today is National Cheeseburger Day. And what better way to celebrate than jamming your throat with as many cheeseburgers as possible?

BGR The Burger Joint is hosting a cheeseburger slider eating competition at noon today at its Bethesda location. It may be calorific, but hey, it’s “dry-aged, all natural, hormone-free, grain-fed” beef!

The contestant who can consume the most sliders in 10 minutes gets $500 cash and the chance to compete in the finals against four other regional winners on National Hamburger Day (May 28). Second place gets a $250 gift card to BGR , and third gets a $100 gift card—because the thing you want most after clogging your digestive system with burgers is more burgers.

Walk-in competitors welcome (space permitting).

BGR The Burger Joint, 4827 Fairmont Ave., Bethesda; (301) 358-6137; bgrtheburgerjoint.com.
