Torrential rain couldn’t dampen the heat emanating from Bunny’s in South Orange on Sunday evening. The sports bar was the scene of a legendary “Defcon Death-Match,” a wing-eating contest that separates the men from the boys (or the women from the girls, as the lone female contestant proved).
The rules: contestants have four minutes to consume 10 wings doused in a specially-brewed, incendiary hot sauce made by locally-grown and internationally renowned Defcon Sauces. Those that manage that must then sit – palms down on the table – for five minutes without consuming any beverages.
Winner Brian Bauman of South Orange took home a trophy, a Defcon T-shirt and bragging rights. Said John Dilley, Defcon founder and owner, “I enjoy other people’s pain. It makes me sleep better at night!”
