Damas y caballeros. Ladies and gentlemen. Damen und herren. Everyone on the planet, listen up: Major League Eating is proud to announce a delicious new addition to our slate of sanctioned Championship events for 2017. El Croquetazo At Calle Ocho Presented By Catalina, the World Championship Croqueta Eating Contest, is the world's first of its kind. Major League Eaters are warmly encouraged to sign up for the opportunity to compete in this history-making event, which will take place at the Carnaval Miami festival on that city's famed Calle Ocho. The festival is produced by the good men and women of the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana and this year celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Those unfamiliar with the croqueta will swoon to its considerable charms upon their first bite. Catalina croquetas are the finest in the world and a classic example of this Cuban delicacy, often enjoyed as a snack, often two or three at a time, often with rich and sweet coffee. Major League Eaters will likely forgo the coffee and will definitely eat more than two or three. Probably hundreds. Who can say how many? We will find out in the afternoon light once the clock reads 0:00 at this inaugural, record-setting event. The man or woman who sets the world's first croqueta-eating record at El Croquetazo At Calle Ocho Presented By Catalina will forever be remembered.

Will it be you? Do you have what it takes to stare down plate upon plate of delicious Catalina croquetas through eight minutes of sanctioned competition? Do you want to visit the magnificence of Carnaval Miami in the Magic City's Little Havana? Do you want to win money? Does glory call your name? Or do you simply want to see the world's best eaters do what they do so well? This is El Croquetazo At Calle Ocho Presented By Catalina! At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!
