American Night - Hot Dog Eating Competition

Friday, 20 April

Chow down and be in to WIN on American Night!


Think you’ve got a big appetite? Why not put it to the test and enter our American Night Hot Dog Eating Contest on Friday 20th April in the Rutherford Room at 7.20pm!

Hot Dog eating contests are hugely popular in the USA, with the current champion having put away 72 Hot Dogs in 10 minutes last year. We wanted to bring some of the fun to you by holding our very own!

We have two divisions to enter – Professional & Amateur:
Enter the amateur league if you’ve never tried anything like this before, and want to have a go, have a laugh and see how you match up against a panel of professional eaters without directly competing.
OR if you’re already a bit of an expert in competitive eating, go head to head with our professional contestants including NZ’s own Nela Zisser!

Cash Prizes up for grabs:
• Be in to win $300.00 cash for 1st place in our Amateur League, or $100.00 in vouchers for 2nd place!
 Snap up a cool $500.00 cash for 1st place in our Professional League, or $300.00 in vouchers for 2nd place!
• All entrants will receive a $20.00 voucher for The Alex Bar & Eatery for taking part.
