Hot Dog Eating Contest 

When: Sat., June 16, 5:45 p.m. 2018
Price: free admission for spectators
St. Louisans eat a lot of hot dogs, which you can tell just by looking to the variety of wieners available in any grocery store in town. Just how much the people enjoy them is evident when you consider that the competitor slots at the 2018 Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest qualifier today at Busch Stadium (700 Clark Street; www.majorleageeating.com) were filled to capacity more than a week before the competition. Watch (perhaps through your fingers) beginning at 5:45 p.m. as the hopefuls eat as many hot dogs and buns as possible in ten minutes — the women's record is 41, so don't think a 25 is going to win it. (The men's record is 73.5!) The top dogs in St. Louis will go on to compete in the national contest at Coney Island, New York, on July 4. The Cardinals also play the Cubs at 7:15 p.m. (tickets are $25.90 to $287.90), and Nathan's Famous is the official hot dog of the Cards, so you could enjoy one or two at a more leisurely pace during the game if you're so inclined.
