Competitive eater inhales Philly favorites at Harrah’s rebranding ceremony

    A re-branding ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the “new” Harrah’s Philadelphia. And to celebrate the Philly connection, competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi was there to entertain.


    According to the Delco Times, Kobayashi “inhaled” a Tony Luke’s cheesesteak, a 10-inch pizza, a crock of mac and cheese, and a 2-pound cannoli.

    In less than two minutes.

    Stunts be damned, Harrah’s has arrived. Again.
