Man eating only Olive Garden achieves his goal, eats $1840 worth of food
J Thoendell stashed this in Food
On Sunday, Nov. 9, those who had been lucky enough to purchase one Olive Garden’s 1,000 Never-Ending Pasta Passes said good-bye to unlimited meals as the promotion came to a close. That means so did Alan Martin, the Burlington, N.C. minister who ate virtually every meal at the Italian chain for the past seven weeks.
I touched base with Martin via email on Monday to see if he met his goal of obtaining $1800 of food and to find out where he ate for lunch when the promotion was over. Here is the final tally:
Total meals: 115
Total value: $1840
Total weight gained/lost: -4 pounds (He lost weight. Seriously.)
