250 Hooters Chicken Wings

The No. 5 professional eater in the world, Geoffrey Esper, caused a major upset last night at the sixth annual Hooters World Wing Eating Championship!

Esper, 42 from Oxford, Massachusetts, devoured 250 world-famous Hooters chicken wings in 10 minutes to clinch the coveted title over defending champion Joey Chestnut (whose final wing tally was 191).

“I competed two years ago and came in seventh,” said Esper, 2017 Hooters World Wing Eating Champion. “I went to my local Hooters, bought a bunch of wings, and I guess it paid off!”

Esper, took down a field of 11 professionally-ranked eaters in the grueling 10-minute all-you-can-eat contest of world-famous Hooters chicken wings which tested jaw strength, endurance, hand speed and
stomach capacity. He demolished more than 113 additional wings than his last Hooters Wing Eating Championship in 2015, his first year on the professional eating circuit. Hooters commissioned Major League Eating to officially sanction the competition.

Esper takes home the top cash prize of $8,500, along with bragging rights to the coveted world title. In total, $17,500 in cash prizes were awarded collectively among the top seven finishers – one of the largest purse prizes on the Major League Eating calendar.

2017 Hooters World Wing Eating Championship Results:

    Geoffrey Esper, Oxford, Massachusetts – 250 wings
    Matt “Megatoad” Stonie, San Jose, California – 229 wings
    Adrian “The Rabbit” Morgan, New Orleans, Louisiana – 210 wings
    Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, San Jose, California – 191 wings
    Gideon Oji, Morrow, Georgia – 168 wings
    Michelle “Cardboard Shell” Lesco, Tucson, Arizona – 158 wings
    Josh Miller, Denver, Colorado – 152 wings
    Richard “the Locust” LeFevre, Henderson, Nevada, 124 wings
    Miki Sudo, Las Vegas, Nevada – 114 wings
    Steve Hendry, Dixon, California – 110 wings
    Eric “Badlands” Booker, Selden, New York – 108 wings

The championship event also celebrated Hooters latest craveable wing innovation: Smoked Wings, now available in participating locations across America. Hooters Smoked Wings are marinated overnight with a dry rub before being hickory smoked in-house, with Hooters oven smokers. Guests can then opt to enhance their wings with several dry rub flavors or sauce them with any of Hooters signature sauces, including teriyaki-style samurai, lemon pepper and chipotle honey.

Millennials Moving to Dallas

Mark Cuban loves Dallas, especially when it comes to tech.

Entrepreneur, investor and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban wants millennials to move to Dallas – and he’s not being shy about touting the reasons why his adopted hometown is the best in the country for the millennial workforce.

In a recently released video, Cuban highlights what makes Dallas the ideal place for passionate entrepreneurs who want to impact the future, including a friendly business climate and high quality of life.

“If you’re young and you’re getting ready to start a business, no matter where you live in the world, I’d say, ‘Come to Dallas,’ because it’s friction-free, it’s really quick, simple and easy to start a company,” Cuban says. “There’s just a different work ethic here. …Every single day, there’s incredible entrepreneurs looking to invent the future.”

Cuban’s opinion of the region is reinforced by the area’s numerous accolades:  Dallas consistently ranks as one of the top places for job growth and millennial relocation in the country, and Texas has been named one of the top states for small businesses, with Dallas receiving an “A+” grade.

“Mark’s enthusiasm for Dallas reflects the strength of our city and the extensive opportunities that are available to our residents,” said Dale Petroskey, President and CEO of the Dallas Regional Chamber. “We can’t wait to show people around the country what we’ve known for a long time: Dallas offers the best career opportunities in one of the most diverse, dynamic and affordable markets in the United States. There’s simply no better place and no better time to be here.”

This spring, the Dallas Regional Chamber (DRC) launched its integrated Talent Attraction campaign, Say Yes to Dallas. The campaign has since spread awareness of the region via social media, interviews, and now through one of the area’s most influential leaders, Mark Cuban.

The video can be viewed on the Say Yes to Dallas website, which in accordance with the video has launched a new jobs portal that highlights various job openings available in the area to potential employees.

Here is the video:

A Piece in Inc. on that 'Good Night's Sleep'

Large-brained types at Northwestern University performed a little research and concluded that the one fine way to guarantee yourself a good night's sleep is to have a purpose in life.

How, though, did they measure it? Well, participants were asked to rate their response to such statements as, "I feel good when I think of what I've done in the past and what I hope to do in the future."
