Joey Chestnut, Sonia 'The Black Widow' Thomas, more competitive eaters coming to Original Hooters in Clearwater




Earlier today, someone asked me: "Why would you post this news on Soundcheck? It has nothing to do with music!"

Maybe not. But isn't the sound of Joey Chestnut wolfing down chicken wings music to everyone's ears? THINK ABOUT IT.

World champion hot dog eater Joey Chestnut will join an all-star lineup of competitive eaters -- including Sonia "The Black Widow" Thomas, Patrick "Deep Dish" Bertoletti and Crazy Legs Conti -- are coming to the Original Hooters in Clearwater on July 26 for the Hooters Wing-Eating World Championship. It's an officially sanctioned Major League Eating event, with $15,000 in cash and prizes on the line. (And okay, fine, there WILL be some music there. One of tbt*'s 2012 Ultimate Local Bands, the Black Honkeys, will perform outside starting at 6 p.m.)
