Celebrate National Hot Dog Day at Chris & Rob’s, and cheer on your local public safety professionals as they eat (a lot!) to win for Charity!
Chris & Rob’s, the authentic Chicago’s Taste Authority, is hosting the Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Fridley Police and Fire Departments for the third annual “weiner 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 24, at 3 PM, when the fun begins! Each team of up to two will pick a charity they would like 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), PLUS 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 open to close at all 3 locations.
Said last year’s winner, Officer Carl White of the Minneapolis Police Dept., “This event combines 2 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! I am the man to beat again this year, you’ll see!”
