Veggie Hot Dog Eating Contest in CH a Huge Success


The hot dog eating contest in the “public realm” in Columbia Heights was awesome. And a little disgusting. But it was super fun. There were tons of participants who were quite enthusiastic. There was a good crowd as well, I’d estimate around 75 or so give a take a few dozen. I only stayed for the first round because well, you can see from the pictures. Check it after the jump.







There was even a contestant in a PoP t-shirt. Represent!
