Debauchery at 4pm in the afternoon? Why not. Dozens of people from around the Vancouver restaurant scene descended on Pourhouse yesterday for the 1st annual Guggenheimer Dog Gobble, a hotdog eating competition pitting citywide restaurant employees against one another for a trophy, bragging rights, and a fillingly good time. Several photos after the leap…
Seventeen competitors sat down in one long row, each in front of their own tray containing fifteen hot dogs supplied by Windsor Meats and three cold cans of 1516 beer supplied by Okanagan Spring. At the word “go”, the dove in.
Each dog was worth five points. Beers counted for ten apiece, but you were only granted access to them after you finished five dogs.
The winner, with seven hot dogs down and three beers to the bladder, was Taylor Corrigan, who toils on the line at Maenam.
