I am really excited about this event. You know Mike is a dear friend and his foundation does amazing work for at risk children here in DFW. I am really thrilled that The Stand in Dallas on McKinney Ave. has chosen his foundation as the beneficiary for this event, not to mention it’s going to be a blast. We all have seen those hot dog eating contests on TV and if you are one who thinks you can do it, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Mark the calendar for June 2.
The Stand’s 1st Annual Mini-Hot Dog Eating contest is going to take place on Saturday June 2nd from 2pm-4pm. There are some amazing prizes for the top 3 finishers and proceeds benefit an amazing cause, The Mike Modano Foundation.
The Stand is a fabulous restaurant on McKinney Avenue that recently has gotten a lot of attention for it’s unique approach to concession style faire. On the side of building The Stand is having a local muralist paint a 15 foot by 60 foot mural of some of the most iconic landmarks in Dallas that all focus around an airstream trailer, which the stand has an original 1967 Airstream cut in half inside their restaurant. Pretty cool to see if you haven’t visited yet. The mural has 12 place marks for images of people and one of those people on the mural could be YOU!
The Mini-Hot Dog eating contest is the first of 2 events that will both benefit Modano’s foundation. You must register for this event to participate but here are the exciting details:
