Exchange students attempting to get on the Hot Dog Hall of Fame.

Everyone  has heard of Corner Bar hot dogs, but how many people are prepared to sit down and eat 12 in a row? Two visiting students accomplished this feat to join the hundreds on the Hot Dog Hall of Fame at the Corner Bar.

Competing or offering support were: Nelson Nunes Filho from Brazil, Manuel Martinez from Spain, Anabel Carrillo from Ecuador, Lukas Kutilek from the Czech Republic, Kate Podhradska from Slovakia, and Jimmy Hunt from Kent City.

Lukas Kutilek from the Czech Republic and Nelson Nunes Filho (Filho means Junior, who knew?) from Brazil are the newest names that will go on the restaurant walls after eating the dogs Saturday, May 9. Saturday was Nelson’s 18th birthday.

Lukas ate 12 dogs in two hours and 25 minutes.
Nelson ate his 12 in just under 45 minutes, WOW! Manuel could only handle eight of the dogs, Kate managed four of them before admitting defeat. Kate opted for an ice cream/cookie desert before attempting her fifth hot dog and then stopped. Anabel is a vegetarian and had a veggie wrap. Jimmy, who hates hot dogs and chili both, managed to choke down two and a half of those chili dogs in support of his friends. A good time was had by everyone and the contestants entertained other patrons that were having lunch at the Corner Bar.
