Eat hot dogs, win free food.


If you aren’t sick of National Hot Dog Month yet, head to Me-n-Ed’s Coney Island Grill in River Park on Thursday.

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.

Oh hell yeah. I’ve been wanting to try a hot dog there for awhile, and $2 dogs is the perfect way to do so.

I’m down for signing up. Anyone else going too? Bradley, Oz? Wanna have a throw down?

Me-N-Ed’s deliberately ripped off the Downtown Coney Island name and that’s messed up. But then if you just don’t care . . . have a great time.
