Nathan's Famous: Weekend Wrap-Up
6/21/2008

It's the longest day of the year and major league eaters everywhere are fixin to dance naked under the stars. Before they do, they'll need to digest this: Nate, Shredder and Davekos will be roaming the lobby of the W on Lexington Ave come July 3rd.

Davekos ate 19.25 Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs and Buns in Atlanta to beat Yarbrough who got 18.5 after a 1.5 dog deduction for epic detritus. Larry McNeil did 17 for 3rd, SPBBB ate 16 for 4th.

In Myrtle Beach, the Shredder ate 22 HDBs for the win. Damon Serignet ate 16. It rained hard and rocked also.

At Sam's Club in Dallas, Nasty Nathan and Double O Kevin Ross tied after regulation, each with 20 dogs. A 2 minute eatoff ensued and Nate ate 5 to Double O's 4. Third place went to Ken Mansfield with 18 Nathan's Famous in regulation.

Happy Summer everyone. Mike Doughty encourages you all "to stand on the arms of the Williamsburg Bridge screaming 'hey man this is babylon.'"
