GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — In honor of its 12th anniversary as a company, HopCat is giving away free Cosmik fries on Jan. 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Madison’s HopCat is on Gorham Street. In addition to giving away fries, a release said it will be hosting an annual fries eating contest held at 3 p.m. There will be three winners. The first will get $500, second will get $100 and third will get $25.

All contestants will start with two pounds of fries and will get additional pounds as they finish the plate. Plates must be empty before they can get more. Winners will be determined by the weight of fries consumed in six minutes.

HopCat will also be tapping rare craft beers specific to each location.
