Ever wanted to be part of a Guinness World Record? How about making history while stuffing your face? The time has come my friends, prepare for battle. Tomorrow, April 20, at Magic City Casino, Burger Beast plans to break the record for "World's Largest Food Truck Event."

Free admission? Yes. Free parking? Yes. Free stretch pants? Maybe...

We sat down with the Beast and asked him all the burning questions that were on your mind.

New Times: What inspired you to create this event?
Burger Beast: Almost two years ago I had an idea to do the World's Largest Food Truck Event. I had found a spot in Homestead that I thought was ideal, but my partners at the time thought it wouldn't work. I held onto to that idea till I suggested it to Magic City Casino late last year. They loved it, and we started working on it immediately and so here we are.

How many trucks do you need to break the record?
The Guinness Book World Record at the moment is 51 trucks. We have 65 food trucks scheduled to attend. If we don't break that record, I'll start a vegan diet on Sunday.

Was the date purely coincidental, or a stroke of genius?
I'd love to take credit but the stars aligned on this one. It's gonna be a great night. Come hungry. Visine optional.

The dunk tank is a great idea. Any chance you'll make a guest appearance?
Thanks. I might make an appearance if we raise a bunch of cash for the St. Baldrick's Charity but thanks to Fatgirl Hedonist, Chat Chow TV, Pincho Factory, Latin House Burger & Taco Bar, and Food Truck Invasion for participating.

What trucks are you most looking forward to?
I'm looking forward to trying out some new trucks like Taste of South Africa & Monte's Country Cajun Cookin. And probably Best French Fries which has never done an event in Miami. And maybe sneaking in a vegan burger from Mushaboom.

Do you plan on making this a regular event?
Regular? Hell no! We set the record and we're done. But if someone tries to beat our record then it'll be on! This is Miami's record.

With so many trucks to choose from, how is anyone supposed to decide?
Give us your tips. I'd suggest showing up with 65 of your closest friends and sharing. Done and done.
