Meat Meet

Atlanta Pride!


Garrison Keillor at Chastain!

If that wasn’t enough smug indie-rock-loving gay-friendly NPR-loyal newspaper columnist to cover in one weekend, Zoo Atlanta is also hosting Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest tomorrow at 1pm.


If you’ve never paid any attention to the world of competitive eating, you’re missing out. It’s a grotesque, bizarre, thrilling and very very fun event that I’ve covered in Creative Loafing for the last three years (2002, 2003, 2004).

The winner of the contest wins a spot at the table for Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest — the Super Bowl of competitive eating events.
