Seven Days needs your financial support!


Side Dishes

Published October 3, 2007 at 3:36 p.m.

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.
