Celebrate National Hot Dog Day at Chris & Rob’s Chicago’s Taste Authority, and cheer on your local public safety professionals as they eat (a lot!) to win for charity!
MINNEAPOLIS, MN-- June 29, 2016 – Chris & Rob’s Chicago’s Taste Authority is hosting the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Police and Fire Departments for the seventh annual “Wiener Take All” Chicago hot dog eating contest. In recognition of one of our favorite holidays, National Hot Dog Day, visit Chris & Rob’s Minneapolis location, located at 3101 East 42nd Street on Tuesday, July 12, at 2:30 p.m., when the fun begins!
Each team of up to two will pick a charity to support with their dog eating winnings. The winning team will get $250 to donate to their charity of choice (examples of past chosen charities: Mpls Police Officers Federation Charities Fund, and the Fallen Firefighters Foundation). In addition, winners will also earn an additional $25 for each hot dog that is eaten during the contest. Customers of Chris and Rob’s can join in on the celebration and get one Chicago style hot dog for only $0.05, with the purchase of a large fries or tots and a fountain drink all day, from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. at both of their Minneapolis and St. Paul locations.
“This event combines two of my passions: Chicago style hot dogs at Chris & Rob’s and my favorite charity. What a better way to celebrate National Hot Dog Day!” said five-time champion, Officer Carl White of the Minneapolis Police Dept. Seated right next to him was 2015 winner and new record holder, Minneapolis Police Officer Tony Olsen, who devoured 8 Chris & Rob’s Chicago Dogs in 5 minutes, bun and toppings included. Olsen stated, “I was just in the moment. I was focusing on the dogs. I was trying to secure the title. Now that’s done.”
