Dog Eating Contest
(Notorious B.O.B. Bob Shoudt) told me that he's always been an
athlete, says he still does 500 crunches a day. From the looks of
things I'd say it's 200 Nestle, 200 Captain, and 100 Heath bars.
~ quote from the 2010 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.
Famous Corporation hosts an annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating
Contest at the site of their first restaurant at the corner of
Surf and Stillwell Avenues in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York.
There are other hot dog contests but none are as famous or claim
to have as long a history as the Nathan's hot dog eating contest.
to legend, on July 4, 1916 four immigrants had a hot dog-eating
contest at the site of the first Nathan's Famous stand (at the
corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues on Coney Island) to settle
an argument about who was the most patriotic. After 12 minutes,
James Mullen had eaten 13 hot dogs and was crowned the victor. A
12 minute contest has been held every year since on Independence
Day at the site. In 1993 there was a one-time one-on-one contest
under the Brooklyn Bridge between Mike DeVito and Orie Ito.
recent years, guitarist and songwriter Amos Wengler has performed
one of the songs he had written for the contest. A person in a
wiener costume dances as Wengler plays. Some of Wengler's
compositions are "Hot Dog Time!", "Hot Dogs, Hot
Dogs" and "Where is the Belt?" by: John Jones.
