Melbourne’s Getting A Hot Dog Scoffing Contest

There's only one way to beat a Saturday hangover, and that's a Hot Dog Eating competition. Just make sure you bring your stretchy pants with you—seriously, you’ll need them.

Ferdydurke is launching their ‘Scoff Dog Competition’ THIS Saturday in collaboration with Brooklyn Brewery. Even better, they’re pitting competitive eaters with us humble folk (have you seen Cal ‘Hulk Food Smash’ Stubbs?). 

So you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Why the hell would I put myself up against these people that can eat a whole burger under three minutes?”. Because $200 is up for grabs, that’s why.

The block party kicks off at 4pm, and if you’re spectating, there will also be a full range of Brooklyn beers (including a keg of Brooklyn Brewery’s Black Ops Barrel Aged Stout—one of only a few brewed in the world) as well as nibbles like deep-fried cheese curds, corn dogs, and a Coney Island-inspired menu. Happy munching! 

Reserve your spot at the Scoff Dog Competition via info@ferdydurke.com.au. You've got until 5pm May 14.
