    How many Tootsie Rolls can you eat in one minute?

    At the L.E.S.' Pianos tonight, the World Record Appreciation Society (yes, you may have heard of them -- they were just featured on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon) brings together would-be record-holders (plus host Jessi Klein of Best Week Ever fame), all hoping to end the night with their name etched in history. Anyone can build a really tall building or throw a javelin; tonight will see some truly amazing feats attempted. Just a smattering of world records you could witness in person:
