Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

To the Big Apple for big hot dogs…

I’ll be in New York City for the Fourth of July weekend watching people eat lots of hot dogs!!!

That’s right, I’ll be watching the Super Bowl of competitive eating live at Coney Island: The Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest!!!

Watch ESPN on Friday at 11am central and maybe you’ll spot me in the crowd!

Last year Joey Chestnut brought the title back to America by defeating the undefeated Takeru Kobayashi…who will win this year?!?!?!

All I have to say is…Go Pat!!!!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
