Yesterday was the centennial outing of the July Fourth hot dog eating contest at Nathan's Famous on Coney Island. This year's male winner was Joey Chestnut, who downed 70 dogs and buns in 10 minutes, a new world record. The new champion had won eight straight competitions in a row before losing last year to Matt Stonie. Both men are from San Jose, California.
Miki Sudo won the women's division. She ate 38.5 hot dogs in 10 minutes. This is the third straight win for her. And guess where she lives? Las Vegas! Yes, Vegas now has the Pink International Belt.
This is a serious sport. ESPN covered it just like the Super Bowl.
See, there is more to Las Vegas than casinos. We locals love to eat!

"My partner and I hired Jake Soteros to be our real estate agent last year after deciding we wanted to invest in the ever evolving downtown Las Vegas housing market. I immediately thought of Jake, since he has been immersed in the downtown scene as a business owner, and also a resident, and definitely has his finger on the pulse! After completing two home purchases over the course of 4 months, having spent the previous 2-3 months searching for just the right properties, I can honestly say that Jake went above and beyond my expectations as a real estate professional! The process of searching for, making offers on, and navigating the contract process can be a roller coaster, to say the least, and Jake's calm and confident demeanor, and his knowledge of the market really helped us to maintain our sanity through some stressful times! And since we travel and work a lot, there were a couple of occasions when Jake acted as a stand-in when we weren't able to be present for an inspection or a repair. I have already referred a good friend that was interested in buying a property downtown to Jake, and she is really enjoying working with him, as well. After our first house closed, celebrating over Mexican food and margaritas, Jake told us that "cheesy as it may sound", he loves helping people reach their goals, and seeing them happy is really gratifying for him :) That absolutely comes through in his work! We are definitely happy, and ready to celebrate that second closing when you are, Jake!"
