How many tomatoes does it take to fill a giant stainless-steel salsa bowl?
Find out Super Bowl Sunday when the Miami Gardens Pollo Tropical (19500 NW 27th Ave.) across the street from Sun Life Stadium hosts a free family tailgate party and Guinness World Records event.
In addition to free Pollo Tropical samplings, a bounce house, games and prizes, a $1,000 salsa dancing competition, a giveaway of free Pollo Tropical for a year, and a meal donation to the
Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade for each participant who shows up,
there will also be an attempt to break the world record for largest
bowl of salsa.
A nine-foot-wide-by-five-foot-deep bowl will be filled
with chopped tomatoes, onions, garlic, and spices to the tune of at
least 600 pounds.
Now that's a hot ticket.
