Does stuffing your face with hot dogs sound like your kind of party? Or are you looking to release your inner Kobayashi? If so, Shanghai’s First Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest may be just the thing for you.
BEAN Shanghai and Handle Bar are teaming up to hold the competition tomorrow afternoon. Entry to the contest is free. We’re told that they’re still looking for a few more contestants. If you’re interested in participating, email [email protected].
For folks who enjoy hot dogs but don’t necessarily have the stomach capacity for competitive eating, 50 RMB will get you a hot dog, Stella and raffle ticket. Proceeds from the event will go to Lupin Healing Home to raise money for an orphan boy’s surgery costs.
When: Tomorrow, September 8 from 3-10 pm. Contest starts at 4.
Where: Handle Bar, 50 Yongkang Lu, near Jiashan Lu (永康路50号)
