Hot Dog Eating Contest with Kobayashi

No need to venture to Coney Island this year to watch the July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest when you’ve got the perfect outdoor venue in Manhattan, the Eventi Hotel Plaza. The Chelsea property will be hosting Kobayashi and seven other acclaimed competitive eaters.

Cheer on Kobayashi at 12 noon, to see if he can break his personal record of 69 hot dogs in just 10 minutes, or will one of his competitors take the title home this year?

After the competition concludes, all will enjoy the premiere of Takeru Kobayashi and Rastellii’s Food Group very own “Kobi Dogs,”all beef mid western grain fed cattle hot dogs available online beginning July 4. And if hot dogs aren’t your thing? Celebrate our nation’s independence with the Hester Street Fair team, who will be bringing its popular food vendors and culinary influencers to the hotel’s Plaza for its weekly Hester Nights including food from all your favorite vendors! Specialty cocktails and authentic Japanese beer will also be available in Brighton.

July 4th themed content will be playing on the hotel’s Big Screen, a 16 x 30 ft LED screen behind the hotel. Tony Luke Jr. will be the event’s MC.
