    New York Eaters Ready Themselves for Ramen Contest Given that the typical night in a noodle bar basically looks (and sounds) like a competitive-eating contest, it’s not hard to imagine what’s store for us at the 2007 Naruto Wii World Ramen Eating Championship Saturday at the Nintendo Store in Rockefeller Center. (The contest is part of the launch of a new Nintendo Wii game.) On the other hand, it’s always a question as to which New York eater is going to come out on top. Over on Epicurious, Michael Park profiles a few of the contenders including rivaling roommates Crazy Legs Conti and Tim “Eater X” Janus.

    Hot-Dog-Eating Champ Struck With Jaw Arthritis Determined to Gulp OnThe 2007 Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest should have been one for the ages – the Ali-Foreman of competitive eating. After an uninterrupted six-year run, Japan’s Takeru Kobayashi was about to meet his match in American Joey Chestnut, who broke “The Tsunami”’s world record earlier this month in Phoenix. But as you may know, Kobayashi came down with jaw arthritis and can barely open his mouth — and, to make matters worse, the trophy the two nations are jousting for, the Mustard Yellow Belt, has been lost.

    Enjoy the Horrors of Vegas Buffets at Water Taxi BeachThere are a lot of reasons to go to the first New York City Food Film Festival, but the chance to watch Buffet — All You Can Eat Las Vegas at the Water Taxi Beach is for us chief among them. Judging from its trailer, above, we think the movie looks like a snarky study of the capital city of American gluttony, complete with shots of waving flags on huge Diamondvision screens and cutaways to pigs feeding at a trough. Given that the festival will be held at one of the most unmistakably New York settings, directly across from midtown on the other side of the East River, and sure to be filled with supercilious foodies, there is bound to be a keen snob pleasure to be had. But the other movies in the festival promise more wholesome joys.

    Scenes From a Turkey-Eating Contest. Need We Say More? The Axia 3 Thanksiving Invitational was held earlier today at Artie’s Deli, and the results were encouraging for fans of New York’s competitive eaters. The top prize went to Pat Bertoletti of Chicago, who scoffed down 4.8 pounds of turkey in twelve minutes, but Manhattan’s own Tim “Eater X” Janus came in second, with famed downtown roué Jason “Crazy Legs” Conti coming in fourth. Arturo Rios, of New Jersey, loosely speaking a local, took third. “Crazy Legs is my baby daddy,” the gracious Rios exclaimed. The morning’s big surprise was the disqualification, for “urges contrary to swallowing,” of the world’s No. 4 ranked eater, Sonia “The Black Widow” Thomas. “I was so greedy,” she told us. “I just took too much in my mouth.” But forget the breakdown. Check out the pics!
