The good folks at Metromix Jersey Shore are p
utting on a Best Of contest, and the BlueClaws have been nominated for best area hot dog.
Head over to their site and vote for us here.
The BlueClaws hot dogs were made famous in 2009 through the Kids Eat Free All Year program, which gave out 71,988 (7.95 miles officially) hot dogs for free to area children, ages 12 and under.
- 7.95 miles is: 24 laps around the FirstEnergy Park concourse
- 7.95 miles is: 3 laps of the Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia historic sites
- 7.95 miles is: 4 trips across Midtown Manhattan
- 7.95 miles is: 29 trips from bottom to top of the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower)
A personal favorite…if Joey Chestnut, who won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest this year, ate hit dogs at the same rate he did that day (68 in 10 minutes), it would take him 7 days, 8 hours, and 26 minutes to reach 71,988.
