Chew on this tidbit of news: eight-time Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest champion Joey Chestnut is coming to Winnipeg.
Chestnut will compete in a five-minute all-you-can-eat fish taco challenge at Investors Group Field during halftime of a Winnipeg Blue Bombers football game versus the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Aug. 7.
Challengers can sign up for the official Major League Eating event here.
Chestnut, 30, successfully defended his hot dog eating crown by chowing down on 61 hotdogs in 10 minutes on July 4 in Brooklyn, N.Y. He ate 23 Joey’s fish tacos in five minutes in a similar competition in 2013. His top challenger managed to eat only seven.
