Mr. Toads set stage for 2007 Egg Competition
     The 2007 Jay’s Egg-Off Competition took the stage at Mr. Toads on June 2 for the fourth-consecutive year with Greensburg local Andrew Wilson emerging victorious at the event.
    Double Down, affectionately named by his peers, was among the egg enthusiasts to sign up at the bar in the weeks prior to event, to compete for the best “beet pickled eggs in Greensburg.” 
    As in years past, the official Egg-Off Plaque is displayed on the Toads wall that includes the names of the contest’s winners. The participants for this year’s event included Greensburg natives Jamie Cibattoni,  Fran Kuhns,  Jackie Parry, Bill Jones, Scott Simmers, Sue Gack, Jill Robinson, Andrew Wilson and Rick Diebold.             
    The judges were Ryan Hanley and Adam Pailey of  Pittsburgh and Andrew Johnson  of West Newton, while Ryan John acted as M.C. for the contest. With an estimated 30+ people in attendance, the next event is scheduled for June 7th 2008.
     “I would like to thank Clyde from Toads for standing back and letting us do our thing,” Ryan Johnson said. “...and for letting us display or plaque on the wall; and  Sue from toads for being a great DJ.”
