Pintxo (pronounced peen-cho) is a Spanish Tapas Bar located in the heart of Belltown. Pintxo’s micro-kitchen, smaller than most food truck kitchens, produces a vast array of small bites from traditional favorites such as Tortilla Española, Bacalao Fritters, Montaditos de Serrano and Patatas Bravas to modern takes on the traditional dishes from various culinary regions of Spain, including San Sebastian, Barcelona and Madrid.
Our Bacon Wrapped Date Eating Competition is back! After a 2 year hiatus, we are ready to host the eating competition of the year. Sit down with fellow competitors at Pintxo’s banquet and take down 50 dates in 30 minutes. If you win, you’re entitled to a $100.00 gift certificate to Pintxo.

Tuesday, October 18th
Begins at 5:15pm (sharp)
Ends at 5:45pm
Admission information for contestants:
- We are charging an admission fee because we want to know you are serious about attending & eating. Our chefs spend hours pitting, stuffing, rolling, and baking those delicious little bundles. It takes time and energy.
- Your admission fee to participate will be donated to Mary’s Place, a belltown non-profit, a leading voice for homeless women, children, and families in emergency situations. If you don’t show – your money is doing good work. If you do show – you have a chance to win & your money is doing good work. Either way, Mary’s Place gets your admission fee.
What it takes to win:
- Be the first contestant to consume all 50 bacon wrapped dates in under 30 minutes.
- We will also have a few local celebrity judges handing out consulation prizes the day of the event.
