Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Guinness record holder Takeru Kobayashi defends his title against six challengers in Eventi Hotel's epic hot-dog-eating contest. After a winner is crowned, snag a first taste of a Kobi Dog, from Kobayashi's own line of grain-fed franks that go on sale July 4. Along with the dogs, Hester Street Fair favorites—like Deviant Chef's Asian-inspired burger—will be available in the outdoor plaza. Head inside to Brighton, the hotel's eatery, for patriotic-themed cocktails and Japanese beer.
