Hot Dog Eating Qualifying Event at Cypress Street - June 15
That's right, Cypress Street Pint & Plate is an officially sanctioned stop on the 2013 Nathan’s Famous qualifying tour, a circuit of more than a dozen contests occurring around the world. Beginning at 11 a.m.on Cypress’ patio, the event will feature a 10 minute all-you-can-eat Nathan’s hot dog challenge and will pit local eaters against professionals, including Eric “Badlands” Booker, Adrian Morgan, and Atlanta’s own Damien Boykin. Who knew Georgia had an eater of such renown?
In honor of the event, Executive Chef Richard Silvey will be serving up delicious specialty Nathan’s hot dogs including:
The Bacon Wrapped Dog - served with teriyaki and pineapple salsa
The Sonoran Dog - served with black beans, fresh avocado, pico de gallo and lime crema
The Muffuletta Dog - with provolone cheese, pepperoncini and olive tapenade.
Get there early to grab a seat and a Shmaltz Brewing Company’s Coney Island Albino Python or Mermaid Pilsner on draught before the hot dog smackdown begins at 1 p.m.. For more information about the event, visit the Cypress Street Pint & Plate Facebook page.
