Diamond Dog eating contest at First Avenue [VIDEO]
It's man vs. sandwich
On the Fourth of July, six brave souls competed at the Depot Tavern to see who could eat the most Diamond Dogs in 10 minutes.
Here's more on the event, and a video of the contest that set a new Diamond Dog record.
Twenty-one-year-old Eric "Silo" Dahl of Delano took first place, defending his title and winning a Platinum Membership, 10 pairs of tickets to First Ave shows, and a $50 Depot gift card. Better yet, he met the additional challenge of breaking last year's total for a new record of 12, which earned him another $500.
Watch the video below to see his record-setting victory.
