In addition to serving $2 hot dogs all day from the walk-up window, Me-n-Ed’s Coney Island will hold a hot-dog eating contest on its patio at 6 p.m.Thursday.
The event is limited to 25 contestants. (Only folks 18 and older, please.) Each competitor will chow down on four Coney dogs, the steamed hot dogs topped with house-made chili, chopped onions and mustard.
The fastest eater wins the contest. The winner will receive a $250 Coney Island gift certificate, plus a trophy. Second prize is a $150 gift certificate. And third place is a $50 gift certificate.
The deadline to sign up at Me-n-Ed’s Coney Island is Wednesday. Think you can win? Call (559) 440-1088 to check on available spots.
