Side Dishes

Dig dogs? You can prove it by stuffing your face for six long minutes during the Church Street Marketplace's first annual hot dog and kebab eating contest this Saturday. Hungry participants can sign up all week at the Kevin's Wicked Mountain Dogs and Amir's Kebabs carts. Trials go down at 2 p.m. At 8 p.m., 10 finalists will compete for the championship. DJ Nastee will keep the crowd entertained with his musical stylings, and once the contest is over, folks whose stomachs have settled can stick around for an outdoor screening of Warren Miller's ski movies.

All the food will be donated, so there's no cost to enter. And everybody who tries gets a prize, on top of the inevitable bellyache.

Looking for something a little healthier? Also on Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., City Market hosts its annual harvest festival. Look for lots of free samples and your favorite farmers.

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
