    We don't have Dave & Busters locally around here that I know of. We grew up on Quaker Steak, so to us anything but is slumming. The sauces and dryrubs are mostly all good with some being very good and the wings are pretty big. All you can eat night is like $20 bucks with a beverage, tax and tip.

    I only read the initial post.
    But it depends on the context. It's brag worthy only if it's meaningless. I worked with a bunch of guys and all we talked about was food. Who ate this, who could eat how much of that. It was harmless, dumb fun. Back in my prime, I could put down absurd amounts of food. We made an art out of going to AYCE dinners. None of us ever took each other seriously, but the volume of food I (and a couple of my buddies) used to put away still makes me shake my head that it was even possible. Outside of us, it held no relevance, but it was still a lot of fun.
    Sometimes, my own mind boggles itself.

    It is sad, though I was in some wing eating contests in the past. When I worked at the restaurant, we used to do team 60 piece wing contests. Me & another guy held the 2 man record at just under 8 minutes. Makes me gag now.

    Had a UMD hockey fan eat a full 60 pc. by himself. I gave him the meal for free

    Really what is "bragworthy" in life? How much one can eat or drink? How much money one can make? How far one can swim or run without passing out? Its one of those things we all seem to do for some reason; we can't help ourselves; and we expect accolades but don't we hate listening to it from others? What a weird world we live in and none of it will even matter tomorrow or the next day.

    I love me some wings though I don't think I could eat that many in a week no matter how hard I tried.

    "The lay person's guide to awesomeness in the rural United States"

    I have a feeling it would be a mixture of "The wonderful whites of west virginia" and "jackass"

    Call it the "Un-Reality Roadtrip".

    It could be all about people nearly killing themselves for bragging rights.

    Doing stuff like riding a barrell over Niagra Falls.
    Surfing the North Shore of Hawaii in early spring.
    Bull riding
    Eating a 60 piece chicken meal in one sitting
