Pop quiz, hot shot: How many hot dogs do you think you could eat in 12 minutes? Four? Maybe five if you pushed it? Youre gonna have to wolf down a few dozen more than that if you wanna stand a chance during the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest Qualifier at the food court of Arizona Mills Mall. Gluttonous gastronomes who can consume the most wieners with buns in a dozen minutes flat will nab prizes from various mall retailers and a spot in the Nathan's International Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 at Coney Island (not to mention a major stomach ache).
