Sir Veza’s Taco Garage Is Holding a Sonoran Hot-Dog Eating Competition

Posted By on Wed, Sep 14, 2011 at 2:00 PM

Fun fact! The fifth of May, or Cinco de Mayo, is not Mexico’s Independence Day. It's actually the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, which is certainly a minor holiday in Mexican communities, but not a celebration of the day Mexico became its own country.

The day Mexico actually celebrates its independence is this Friday, Sept. 16, which Ray Flores of Sir Veza’s Taco Garage says is the perfect day to hold his first Sonoran hot-dog eating contest. I spoke with Flores last week and he said he’s going to make the contest an annual event, sort of the Nathan’s Hot Dog competition of Southern Arizona. The contest starts around 6 p.m., and there will be prizes.

There might still be a few places left for anyone interested in competing, too, but you’ll need to contact Sir Veza’s for more on that.
