When it comes to the Fourth of July, hamburgers, hot dogs, and all things BBQ is everything. That said, nothing says ‘merica like an eating contest—a hamburger eating contest, specifically!
This Wednesday, the “urban tiki” Dromedary Bar in Bushwick is hosting their second burger eating contest to celebrate our Independence Day.
Usually, competitors would have to shove as many burgers into their stomachs as physically possible…however, this time there will be three eating rounds total, each being slightly more challenging than the last. In the first round competitors will have to put down four single-patty hamburgers. The second round will feature two hamburgers each with two patties, and then the third round will be a mega burger! Oh, and in case you don’t think that’ll be too filling, you’ll have to shotgun a beer between rounds. Here’s a look at last year’s contest:
The first, second, and third place winners will receive $200, $100, and $50, respectively. If you’re interested in competing be sure to email the bar at firstname.lastname@example.org!
