The term “beefsteak” refers to both to the event and the featured menu item – a cut of rare beef tenderloin served over a slice of bread. At a beefsteak, participants wear white aprons and are encouraged to eat all the beefsteaks their hearts desire, without the luxury of cutlery or napkins. Some beefsteakers prefer not to fill up on anything but beef and beer, leaving their bread behind to be stacked in piles. Seasoned beefsteakers pride themselves on the height of their bread tower and the number of grease spots on their apron. In addition to beefsteak and beer, patrons can also enjoy St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail and an open bar.
