New York City events: July 2012
Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest
One or two dogs are enough for you? That’s fine. You and an estimated 40,000 others can watch the professionals gorge on dozens more in the granddaddy of all pig-out contests. Last year’s winner and the defending champ, Joey Chestnut, holds the official world record with 68 dogs in ten minutes. Be glad it’s not you up on the podium.
