Hot dog fans have been stuffing their faces for weeks at Steve's Snappin' Dogs, and at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 27, eight survivors of the Chow Down for Charity hot-dog eating contest -- the Elite Ate" -- will face off in an eight-minute challenge.
Good dogs, and all for a good cause: The contestants' entry fees and a portion of all hot dogs sold during the event will benefit Project Angel Heart and the Colorado AIDS Fund. For details, go to www.stevessnappindogs.com. Or just stop by the classic hot dog joint at 3525 East Colfax Avenue.
