'Big Teplitzky Challenge' in Atlantic City

It's Atlantic City's firefighters versus police officers in this year's "Big Teplitzky Challenge," taking place at Atlantic City's Chelsea Hotel 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 12.

Atlantic City's finest will compete to be the first to clear their plate of a 4-pound breakfast of pancakes, stuffed French toast, eggs, bacon, turkey sausage, pork roll, hash browns, grilled tomato, toast and a bagel - all with orange juice and bottomless coffee or tea to wash it down.

The police officers' cause will support fellow police officer, Jack Slota, who was injured in an accident on his way to duty.
