from Nick Diener of The Swellers:
I had eaten at different Spike’s Junkyard Dogs locations around Boston and Rhode Island on almost every tour we did out that way, and it became a goal of mine to get my picture posted on the wall. One needed to eat 6 hot dogs in under 90 minutes to receive a Spike’s t-shirt and a place on the wall of fame. I decided I could definitely do more than 6.
As we pulled into our AP tour show at the House Of Blues in Boston, I made up my mind to eat a lot less, but expand my stomach by drinking a LOT of water. I drank a gallon pretty quickly a few hours before we played.. and I actually felt great, minus having to go to the bathroom every 10 minutes.
