Over the Weekend: Nathan's Hot Dogs, Brand X T-shirts and Eartha Kitt
By Jonathan McNamara
Either way you look at it, it was a delicious weekend. Then again, how could it not be when it was full of cup cakes, hot dogs and Eartha Kitt?
A dozen competitors bent on making it to the official Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Competition at Coney Island met on the field of battle at Arizona Mills Mall this weekend. Tim "Gravy" Brown won with an astounding 33 and a half hot dogs in just ten minutes.
Brand X T-shirts on Mill hosted an "Academics Party" this weekend. Essentially an art show, the event also featured spinning DJs, free cup cakes and shirt-pressing, naturally.
Find out why this weekend's performance pairing Eartha Kitt with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra Ensemble convinced Music Editor Niki D'Andrea that Kitt can still pull off her sex kitten schtick.
