Celebrate the Fourth of July the way our forefathers never could have intended: chowing down corn dogs so quickly it's probably hard to breathe. But it's a free country, and you can pay $20 to compete for the chance to win $250. All entry fees benefit Emancipet. Sign up by emailing events@blacksheeplodge.com.
