LAWRENCEVILLE, GA -- The Knucksie, the famed pulled pork/coleslaw/cornbread combo cooked up by legendary Atlanta Braves pitcher Phil Niekro and available only at Niekro's Restaurant at Coolray Field, is currently up for "Best Minor League Concession Item" on MiLB.com's #FoodFight contest.
Every retweet of The Knucksie featuring the hashtag #FoodFight qualifies as a vote in the contest. Not only will you support the Gwinnett Braves in their quest to have Minor League Baseball's top food item, but you'll also be entering yourself in the annual contest to chow down on The Knucksie at Coolray Field. The most retweets for each day, Tuesday through Thursday, will win seats in "The Knucksie Eating Contest" as part of "Dudes vs. Foods Night" on Friday, May 24.
The winner of "The Knucksie Eating Contest," i.e. the person who can take down the most Knucksie's in a set amount of time during the game, will win a 20-person Coolray Field Luxury Suite for a 2013 game.
To participate and cast your vote, follow the Gwinnett Braves on Twitter at @GwinnettBraves and look for the chance to retweet The Knucksie. Daily winners of the "Dudes vs. Foods" spots will also be announced on Twitter. For more information, contact the Gwinnett Braves at firstname.lastname@example.org.
