Fireworks and Hot Dogs

The July 4th fireworks are supposed to kick off tomorrow night around 9:20 p.m. dumbonyc has a nice photo from last year. Every year my family, me and my husband go to the Hamptons, well actually Amagansett, which is near East Hampton. It's so beautiful, but this year we convinced my parents that the fireworks in DUMBO were much better and that we should all hang out here first.
Aside from fireworks, the Coney Island hot dog eating contest goes hand-in-hand with July 4th. I just read that the champion is suffering from jaw pain and may not be able to compete this year.

Takeru Kobayashi, the six-time defending Nathan's hot dog eating champion, received a chilling diagnosis that could end his Fourth of July roll: a creaky jaw.
