A short story by Damon Runyon set in New York during the 1920s

It's New York verses Boston! We present a short story by Damon Runyon, entitled A Piece of Pie, about  an eating contest, that also becomes a battle of the sexes! Miss Violet Strumberger sits down across the dining table to uphold the honor of the Big Apple, and a $10,000 bet, against Bean Town's champion eater Joel Duffel. She is only doing this because Nicely Nicely Jones, whom many up and down Broadway recognize as one of the greatest eaters in history, is now engaged to be married to her best friend, Miss Hilda Slocum. Who, insists that Nicely go on a diet to lose 120 pounds before they can get married! And then things really get complicated! Another great story set in New York of the 1920s by Damon Runyon. Read to us by Napales Yellow.
