Every year, HopCat celebrates their birthday in the best way they can... with a fries eating contest. It's only right since their fries are legit crack... I mean out of this world.

On January 25th, they'll be hosting their 12th anniversary of their inception in Downtown Grand Rapids -- the chain's main location. They'll be offering up rare beers, speciality food items, and free Cosmik Fries for everyone from 11a-5p.

Don't miss the Cosmik Fries Eating Contest at 3 p.m. with 1st through 3rd place prizes, including a $500 gift card for first place. Each contestant will get 2 pounds of fries and the person who eats the most in 6 minutes is the champ. Do you think you have what it takes? If so, you can sign up now by e-mailing juice@hopcat.com and maybe start practicing ;-)

HopCat will also be announcing their new menu items debuting on the 27th, which also includes the ShakShuka Fries which were the winning flavor of the #DecideTheFries contest.

The party will take place at all of their locations.
