Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest

A 40,000-strong crowd witnessed history at the 2013 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 (if you consider nausea-inducing spectacles of gluttony historic). Reigning champ Joey “Jaws” Chestnut set a new record, wolfing down 69 frankfurters in ten minutes to win his seventh consecutive title. The women's bracket was topped by Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, who managed to inhale 36 and 3/4th dogs and buns.


RECOMMENDED: 4th of July in NYC
