Our 3rd Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest!

We’ve got a busy couple of week/ends ahead of us, folks! We spilled the beans on our Sunday, August 25th Block Party (co-hosted by Carriage House and UN86D). And now we’re here to remind you that all of your hot dog-consumption over the past year has not been in vain. You see, Chicago is home to Vienna Beef and is literally a style of hot dog, so we think it’s basically your civic duty to participate in our 3rd Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest on Monday, September 2 (that’s Labor Day).

Need some persuading? Check out these photos from last year’s contest, captured by Chicago Magazine. Need some tips from the pros? Check out the 2013 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, where winner Joey Chestnut managed to eat 69 hot dog + buns, becoming the first seven-time consecutive champion. 

And even though we might come off as a little fast and loose, we do have some rules for you to follow if you want to be the lucky winner of two Bears tickets (and the most deserved tummy ache this side of Lake Michigan):

  • Sign up at Bangers & Lace in person, up to 2 hours before event.
  • Contestant check in at 2pm. Contest begins at 3pm.
  • Contest will last five minutes. The winner will have consumed the most hot dogs within that time. Go ahead and chase those franks with a cold pilsner!
  • Each participant receives a Bangers & Lace tshirt.
  • Winner receives an awesome set of Chicago Bears tickets!
