How many of these can you stuff down your gullet in 10 minutes?

Those Diamond Dogs at First Avenue's Depot Tavern are pretty damn tasty--we've called 'em the Lady Gaga of tube steak, a dog dressed to dazzle with its deep-fried bacon spiral and soft pretzel bun.

If you agree, maybe you want to try your hand, er, stomach at the Depot Tavern's Diamond Dog eating contest and see how many you can eat in 10 minutes?

City Pages is hoping you'll be our dog-eating representative. See below for details on what you need to know and how to sign up:

On July 4, at 2 p.m., at the Depot Tavern, six contestants will have 10 minutes to put away as many Diamond Dogs as they can, without vomiting or making a trip to the restroom (no fries, thankfully, as those pretzel buns are already pretty dense).

The first place winner will receive 10 pairs of tickets to First Avenue shows and a $50 Depot gift certificate. Second place will receive 5 pairs of tickets and a $25 gift certificate. Third place will receive 3 pairs of tickets and a $25 gift certificate.
