Some say summer is about getting into the gym and fitting into last years bathing suit. I say its about eating a ton of hot dogs. Im talking fifty or so and not over the course of an entire summer, but in about ten minutes. Sound appetizing? If so, be at the Sams Club at 7817 Park Meadows Drive at 11 a.m. today for the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Regional Competition, in preparation for the companys Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest, which takes place at Coney Island on Independence Day.
