Renowned competitive eater to take on hot dogs

Renowned competitive eater to take on hot dogs at American Night

Interest is mounting ahead of Alexandra Park’s inaugural hot dog eating competition set to take place on Friday 20 April as part of its American Night.

The person to beat will be renowned New Zealand competitive eater Nela Zisser who can devour 36 Crème Eggs in quick succession, 45 cheese burgers in under an hour, and a 10,000 calorie English breakfast in one sitting.

“Nela Zisser has confirmed she is attending and partaking in our hot dog eating competition. At 25, she is already internationally known and is certainly the one to beat. It’s going to be quite a spectacle,” says Joel Reichardt, Sales & Marketing Manager at Alexandra Park.

The hot dog eating competition is offering some great cash prizes for both the professional and amateur leagues. Mr Reichardt says it is a fitting event for American Night as similar competitions are hugely popular in the US with the current champion putting away 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes!

To reserve a spot in Alexandra Park’s 10-minute hotdog races, people need to purchase a fully refundable $20 entry fee via its website which includes all the event information:https://www.alexandrapark.co.nz/whats-on/hot-dog-eating-contest/

American Night will also be attended by leading Donald Trump impersonator, Alex Sparrow who has been ranked as one of the world’s top 10 Donald Trump impersonators.

As well as hot dogs and ‘Donald Trump’, the evening promises to be star-spangled night of delicious American-style food, exciting harness racing action, and classic cars.

American Night hospitality packages for the all-you-can-eat US-inspired buffet range from $60 to $125 per person. Promoted as a night in the Hamptons at Top of the Park and a stroll through New Orleans in the Tasman Room, the best of the US will be served up in both venues.

This year the Tasman Room will also undergo an amazing streetscape transformation into a New Orleans-inspired Bourbon Street, complete with a selection of food stalls and a funky Jazz band.

To secure tickets phone (09) 631-1165, email dining@alexandrapark.co.nz, or visit https://www.alexandrapark.co.nz/whats-on/?date=20-04-2018

General admission into Alexandra Park as well as car-parking and race books remain free on the night. Other internationally-themed cuisine race nights at Alexandra Park include Mexican Night on 4 May and French Night on 25 May.

Hope For Nature: A New Deal For The Commons

Joseph Cederwall on The Dig: The disruption and destruction of the interconnected biodiversity of Earth is the most serious challenge humanity has ever faced. This is an ecosystem emergency on an extinction scale. It is also a serious threat to the inherent rights of the diversity of non-human life, ecosystems and human Cultures on Earth to exist and thrive. The current global paradigm is devastating life everywhere by disrupting vital “ecosystem services” like the food, water, and climate regulation systems that both humanity and biodiversity depend on in an interconnected balance. It is increasingly clear that the primary driver of this crisis is the limiting and infectious worldview around land and resource use so central to the global capitalist system. To fully understand the biodiversity crisis and explore what comes next, it is necessary to address this mind-virus at the heart of our modern civilisation – the dominion worldview. More>>
