Give thanks for expandable waistbands. On Nov. 25, Thanksgiving Day, Shin-Sen-Gumi in Fountain Valley will host a ramen challenge. Ten bucks gets you a standard bowl of ramen with unlimited servings of extra noodles. Men that finish six servings of extra noodles in 45 minutes get their ramen for free. Women must finish four servings of extra noodles within the time limit for their meal to be comped. The challenger who slurps up the most servings of extra noodles throughout the day wins a $50 gift certificate.

BallPark Pizza Team in Rancho Santa Margarita hosts this challenge--and by extra large, they mean extra large. A team of two has one hour to finish a 28-inch party pizza, meant to feed a group of 20. That's a 60-slice pie we're talking about. If the pizza is fully consumed, the face-stuffing duo gets to split a $100 cash prize. Only one team has completed the challenge so far.


22431 Antonio Pkwy., Ste. B-110, Rancho Santa Margarita (949) 589-3436; www.ballparkpizzateam.com. Challengers must order the pizza 24 hours in advance. 

5. The Blazin' Challenge

 
Those with taste buds of steel and titanium stomachs can take the Blazin' Challenge at Buffalo Wild Wings: Eat 12 of restaurant's Blazin' Wings (the hottest available) in less than 6 minutes and get your picture on the wall and a free T-shirt. No cooling the palate with beverages or ranch and celery, and no touching the face. My friend Yon did the challenge in Irvine twice. Look, he's not even sweating!
