Come Watch Guys Eat Hot Dogs

Posted By on Thu, Jun 2, 2011 at 11:56 AM


A regional qualifier for a spot in the famous gastro-spectacle of the annual Nathan's hot dog eating contest will be held at 12:30 today in Tower City.

Come watch local boy, and former Scene cover subject, Scott "Beefcakes" Bickel try to take down some of the best competitive eaters in the world.

We'll be there cheering him, taking pictures of humans ingesting way more nitrate-laden dogs than the FDA would ever suggest, and rooting for someone to throw up. Join us.
