Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest
Location: Surf and Stillwell Avenues, Coney Island
A national pastime, the hot dog eating contest on the Fourth of July is broadcast live on ESPN. There's something weirdly interesting and also revolting about watching people inhale hot dogs. Sick of watching on TV? Go down to Coney Island and see it in person. And no, it isn't as easy as it looks—you probably couldn't win it, so, please, shut up. Just enjoy the weirdness of Coney Island, and the limits of the human body.
