Mardi Gras hot dog winner takes down 11 dogs

Mitchell Manresa apparently is the top dog at Mardi Gras Casino. He ate 11 of them at Mardi Gras Casino's contest and took home $1,000 cash.

Each contestant has three minutes to consume as many hot dogs and buns as possible. Partially eaten and un-swallowed hot dogs did not count.

A Mardi Gras press release said Steve Harmon, Big105.9’s on-air talent and Paul & Young Ron Morning Show Executive producer, was onsite to emcee the event. Liam Burt came in third place eating eight hot dogs; in second place eating nine hot dogs was Michael Parish.

The casino is at 831 N.h Federal Highway on the corner of US-1 and Pembroke Road. Call 954-924-3200 or visit or  http://www/
