Catch the World's Fastest Hot Dog Eater At Eventi Hotel
Food has been one of the main attractions over at Eventi Hotel since 2010, when they opened a fancy-pants food court called FoodParc next to the lobby. So it's kind of fitting that the hotel will be hosting a July 4th hot dog eating contest, next month featuring none other than Takeru Kobayashi, the world's greatest hot dog eater.
This is great news for Kobayashi fans who usually have to trek all the way out to Coney Island to watch their hero scarf down wieners (his personal record is 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes).
The event will be hosted at the outdoor plaza in the back of the hotel, where Kobayashi will compete with seven other "acclaimed competitive eaters." We still can't believe that some people make a living in this world as "competitive eaters," but hey, if it pays the bills…
Eventi will make use of their Big Screen (a 16' x 30' LED screen installed over the plaza) to broadcast the event—so even if you show up and the place is mobbed, you'll still be able to get a good view of the mouth-stuffing action.
After the contest, Kobayashi will be unveiling his new line of all-beef midwestern grain-fed hot dogs, known officially as "Kobi Dogs." For vegetarians, the event will also feature several vendors from the Hester Street Fair, a popular downtown food market, who will be selling their own treats and beverages (which you can ingest at your own pace!)
The hot dog eating will begin promptly at noon on July 4th. May the hungriest man win!
