How many chili dogs could you eat in 15 minutes? You might think 12 is too ambitious, but you’d be wrong.

Chris Monhan took home the first place championship belt Thursday at the annual City Tavern Fourth of July chili dog eating contest.

It was all a part of City Tavern’s annual July Fourth Block Party.

Hot Dog for Heroes wrapped up around 7 p.m., but live music and food by celebrity chef Brian Buffy will continue until around 9 p.m.

All proceeds from this event will benefit the local American Legion Post #38 in downtown Fort Myers, which provides food, services and basic necessities to veterans.
