4th of July at Luma

We didn’t celebrate 4th of July this year with just an ordinary BBQ; instead, we brought the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest to Luma!

unspecified-3The Contestants 

The Rules:

  • 10 minutes to eat as many hot dogs and buns as possible
  • Water and iced tea beverages provided for contestants to drink, dip, spill, or ignore
  • Choice of condiments
  • Vomiting during the competition results in immediate disqualification



The 1st prize giveaway was a night at the swanky Standard Hotel in Downtown LA!

With stakes that high, you bet that the competition grew fierce.


Although our Managing Director, Jay Lichtman, decided to kick back and pour himself a glass of wine while he chowed down.



After a suspenseful 10 minutes of intense competition, the winner of the contest won by just .5 of a hot dog! Technical Coordinator, Cory Krupinsky, took home 1st place with an impressive total of 10 hot dogs!


Although the champion of the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest ate an astounding 70 hot dogs, Cory is still a hero in our eyes.

And finally…we set up a hot dog and cotton candy stand for our crew whom wanted to enjoy a hot dog without hastily shoving them down their throats.
