SF Pho Challenge

i can see this turning into a mini-meet:

http://phogardensf.com/page.php?Page=team

"For all of you pho lovers. Your opportunity has arrived. The biggest bowl of Pho you could ever get your hands on.! Do you think you have what it takes to beat the Pho Garden Challenge? Three large bowls of "Pho Garden (Xe Lua)" in one massive bowl. Containing 2 pounds of noodles and 2 pounds of combination beef with tripe.

It's on us if you can finish this huge bowl of pho within 60 minutes!

Plus we hang an 8x10in personal photo of you on our wall of Pho Garden Champions. The meal cost $22 if unfinished within the alloted time. No substitutions of any food products may be made. Challengers must eat all noodles and combination beef with tripe to successfully beat the Pho Garden Challenge. Please view our Rules & Waiver of Liability Form for more details."

The place is on clement and 22. Anybody here try this already??
