The Outback Bowl team dinner was Friday night at the Convention Center downtown.
I’m sorry, make that the Outback Steakhouse Team Welcome Dinner. They have it with all caps and I say they’ve earned it.
Here’s how the 5,500 pounds of food were broken down:
750 pounds of steak, 750 pounds of chicken, 900 pounds of ribs, 700 pounds of bleu cheese wedge salad (that was surprising), 200 pounds of green beans (that’s my weight in green beans).
The big item (literally), 950 pounds of Bloomin’ Onions. That’s enough crispy goodness for a small nation. That’s a GNP of grease.
For desert, how about 1,300 pounds of cheesecake?
Also, there was 85 gallons of barbecue sauce and 60 cases of soda and water.
I don’t know about you guys, but now I’m hungry.
