Team What’s On are partial to bit of indulgence on the food front, taking on all manner of eating challenges around town, including Dubai’s biggest dessert, Tony Roma’s mega ribs, and the UAE’s hottest burger.

But how do you fancy taking on your own peers at that very American of challenges, the Hot Dog Eating Competition? With a nod to the popular day in the USA, Claw BBQ, Crabshack & Grill are kick-starting their new season with their own Homecoming 2014.

Featuring live music, drinks promotions and a special ceremony to crown a King & Queen, the night of festivities on September 17 will celebrate all things Stateside.

The centrepiece of the night will be the first annual CLAW Hotdog Eating Competitions, with competitors trying to eat as many beef sausages as they can in 10 minutes.

Anyone wishing to take part should email their details to lauren@clawbbq.com before September 15. The winner will receive a special trophy, their name on CLAW’s Hall of Fame and special CLAW prizes.
