Are you man enough to take on hot challenge?
ARE you man enough to handle the eye-watering, tongue-burning, surface of the sun chicken wings at The Barge?
The extremely hot Man V Food challenge takes place at the floating pub on Grimsby Riverhead on Wednesday, May 2, at 7pm.
The Barge plans to host monthly eating events, which are similar to the American food reality television series Man V Food, on the Travel Channel with Adam Richman.

Sounds simple, eh? Well not when they are four times hotter then the hottest chilli in the world, the Naga Jolokia.
This chilli is rated at over one-million Scoville units – which is red hot. But the chicken wing sauce, which is partly a special mixture imported from America, has a four-million Scoville rating.
The rules are you can have a pint of beer or water while eating the fiery challenge.
And if you are the overall winner, in the quickest time, you will receive a Man V Food T-shirt with a picture of your sweating face on it while taking part in the challenge.
Derrich Howard, owner of The Barge for 20 years, said 23 people have already signed up for it.
"We have added 150 Dorset Naga chillis to the mixture, which is one of the hottest chillis in the world," he said.
"The wings have been brewing for five days before the challenge, with a mixture of garlic, onions and tomatoes added, so it actually tastes nice.
"If people think they like hot food and are up for a challenge, then they should come along to this mind-blowing evening.
"People have to sign a disclaimer which says that they are aware of the consequences of the challenge.
"It isn't for the faint-hearted either – people with heart problems or any other medical problems shouldn't take part.
"We have bought 500 chicken wings from a local butchers, Gary Burke, on Freeman Street Market."
Nick Taylor has been head chef at The Barge for 18 months, and tested three fiery wings, which made his eyes water and sweat pour from his face.
"It was a real struggle," he said, "And I only managed three!"
"It is the hottest thing I have ever tasted and it made me cry. I like hot food, but not that hot.
"I think the challenge is just doable – if you like really hot food, and I mean really hot.
"We wanted it to be extra hot by importing the extracts from Massachusetts, in America.
"And, of course, we threw in all mind blowing fresh hot ingredients."
The pub also offers fresh, homemade food which is less challenging to eat.
By mid May, the owner hopes to serve food all day until 7pm.
Derrick said: "Nothing is processed and everything is honest food.
"Surf and turf has to be my favourite meal, which has whole tail scampi.
"We offer a range of meats, from lamb, gammon, chicken and steaks, of course.
"Chicken, bacon and cheese is especially popular with the ladies."
They also offer vegetarian meals, which are a tasty enough option to be enjoyed by both veggies and meat eaters.
Try for yourself:
The next mammoth event is on Wednesday, June 13. It is a two-and-a-half pound burger, with onion rings, fried onions, cheese, nacho cheese sauce and, of course, chips.
If you dare, it is £5 to enter the Man V Food event. To book, call 01472 340911, or turn up on the night.
