Scoot Inn Hosts Veggie-Hot-Dog-Eating Contest

We really have no idea who Mike Litt is, but the Scoot Inn (1308 E. Fourth) hosts the first-ever veggie-hot-dog-eating competition Saturday at 1pm. Special local guests include the Famous Vegan Firefighters (, the grub will be provided by the Hot Dog King, and the goal is to stuff as many of the meat-free dogs, plus buns, into your gullet in 12 minutes. If the thought of firefighters is getting you all flustered, there is one disclaimer: "Eating a lot very quickly presents certain risks. Please don't choke just so a Vegan Firefighter will give you mouth to mouth."
