B.J. FAZELI – OWNER OF FAZELI CELLARS TALKS TRAVEL, FOOD AND WINE IN TEMECULA 

A pioneer in the direct response industry, B.J. has made a second career out of his dream of owning his own winery.

Careful consideration is made when it comes to selecting the unique names of the wines, each of which bears a meaningful connection to Fazeli’s Persian heritage.   In addition to the winery, B.J. also owns a restaurant in Temecula. With the goal of merging ancient Persia with contemporary California, Baba Joon's Kitchen provides a unique – and extensive – Mediterranean Persian fusion menu that results in a perfect wine pairing experience.  Many of the menu items were created by B.J., reflecting his singular passion for the art of cooking and wine-pairing that gives traditional Persian ingredients and dishes an original twist and modern feel.

EIGHT-TIME HOT DOG EATING CHAMPION JOEY CHESTNUT - PREVIEW OF THIS YEAR’S CONEY ISLAND INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

EIGHT-TIME HOT DOG EATING CHAMPION JOEY CHESTNUT’S QUEST TO REGAIN THE INTERNATIONAL TITLE GOING FOR #9 THIS INDEPENDENCE DAY

There are few champions in any sport who can claim eight consecutive championships. This coming Independence Day, Joey “JAWS” Chestnut will once again try to make history at Coney Island by going for a record ninth championship.  Jaws was upset in the final competition last year, so this year he’s training hard to regain his title and add to his world record.  Whatever happens, Joey has already established himself as one of the all-time greats in the sport of competition eating.

On June 24th, the hot dog eating super star will be in Washington, DC., for one of the qualifying events for the Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating contest. He will also introduce your us to Nathan’s Ticket to Fun Rewards (www.NathansTicketToFun.com).  Everyone will want to know how Joey won in 2014 by eating 61 hot dogs in ten minutes, and in 2013 when he consumed a record 69 hot dogs and buns.

NATHAN’S FAMOUS 100TH HOT DOG EATING COMPETITION. FROM AROUND THE GLOBE, THOUSANDS WILL GATHER TO CELEBRATE. JOIN THE FUN THIS JULY 4TH. 

This Fourth of July people will gather by the thousands at the corner of Surf and Stillwell in Coney Island, NY to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Nathan’s Famous by playing witness to the most unique sporting competition in the world. They’ll flock to Nathan’s flagship restaurant to catch a glimpse of these hot dog eating legends and the celebration that is as uniquely American as it is Nathan’s.

MORTALS BECOME LEGENDS
On July Fourth, the world’s top competitive eaters will gather for a chance to become a legend. Will current champions Matt Stonie and Miki Sudo continue in their recently won reigns? Or will the dethroned Joey Chestnut and Sonya Thomas retake their places as best in the world?

ABOUT JOEY
Joey Chestnut is the greatest eater is history. That is not empty editorializing or bloviating. That is empirical fact. Members of the media and members of the scientific community are warmly invited to conduct their own independent analysis; MLE is confident that you will come to the same conclusions. Chestnut defeated Kobayashi at the 2007 Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contests to return the Mustard Yellow Belt to the United States. That victory was the start of an unprecedented eight-year run at the top of the Nathan’s Hot Dog World; Chestnut was undefeated at the event he made his own through 2014. He is also adept at a wide variety of foods stuffs, notably chicken wings—he is the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Hooters Worldwide Wing Eating Champion—and chili. At the time of writing, Chestnut holds 40 World Records across 40 disciplines. That is a World Record of World Records. These days Joey Chestnut is truly an American hero and a national treasure. His appetite is legendary and he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Keep your eyes open, world, because Joey Chestnut may be coming to a city near you soon.
