How I Started My Day: With a Chuckle

Serious Eats was contacted by a PR agency to see if we had any interest in attending the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.  I've watched it on ESPN and have also watched MTV's True Life, "I'm a Competitive Eater" and thought it sounded like fun.  I'm not sure that the 95 degree weather with 90% humidity will be fun though.

Anyways, I responded to the agency, and lo and behold this is what arrived today.  The Pepto Bismol was just a nice extra I guess.  They know me all too well.  This weekend will probably need an antacid of some type.

So, check out the contest this Sunday.  ESPN will begin broadcasting at 11:00 a.m. EST.  You may just see me up there, trying to beat Joey Chestnut's 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes.


  1. I love Nathan's hot dogs! They are the best store bought hot dogs around. We'll be rooting for ya!

  2. Haha, the Pepto was a classy touch!
