The event benefits the Springfield Humane Society’s capital campaign, which is raising funds to renovate their building.
It’s a little bit out of our Safari range, so we won’t be attending, but if you’re in the area, we encourage you to check it out!
Thanks to our awesome sponsors we were once again able to provide a grilled Hot Dog lunch to the kids at the Philly HERO (Help Energize & Rebuild Ourselves) summer camp on July 31st.
It was a perfect end to 2014′s National Hot Dog Month in Philly!
Every year, during National Hot Dog Month, we take a Hot Dog Safari to sample Hot Dogs from stands all around the area. On July 30th, this year’s safari took us to the northern suburbs of Philly.
Our 1st stop was at Levis in Abington, PA.
Here we tried a couple of dogs, one loaded with their homemade Pepper Hash and a Texas Weiner, washed down with Levis own Root Beer Soda.
Next stop was at Jack Frost in Glenside, PA.
They don’t have a signature dog or special toppings, so we got the works: ketchup, mustard, relish and raw onions.
Next we stopped by Denny’s Dogs in Hatboro, PA.
Here’s Joel trying the Texas Tommy. They make their chili with beans and it is delicious.
Our final stop was at Lenny’s Hot Dogs, in Feasterville, PA. We checked out their Pepper Hash Hot Dog, but unfortunately realized we didn’t have any photos until after the Hot dog was gone…
Thanks to the generous help of our sponsors we were able to feed over a hundred vets at the Philly’s Veterans Multi-Service Center (VMC), a Hot Dog Lunch on Tuesday July 29th.
Here’s one of the less camera shy vets enjoying his Hot Dog.

The Discovery/Science Channel’s “How It’s Made” Hot Dogs episode:
We spent Saturday afternoon, July 26th, eating Hot Dogs at several locations along South Street, here in Philly. Our sampling began at O’Neals Pub, where we tried their Corndog.
Next on the crawl was the Headhouse Crab & Oyster Co, whcih served up their Dog Day’s of Summer Award Winning Sea Dog.
We followed that with a stop at Primo Hoagies South Street to try the Sausage Sandwich.
Next on the crawl was Copabanana / Redwood, were we checked out their Dog Day’s of Summer entry, an All Beef Cheddar Jalapeno Corndog.
A Hot Dog crawl on South Street wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Gus’s Hot Dog Cart, so that’s were we headed next. Our timing could not have been better. So far, we’d been ordering one, maybe two, of each dog with each of us getting a bite.
Gus wanted to give Joel a whole Hot Dog, but Joel told him it was too much to eat and he should give it to someone else. At this exact moment a woman walked up and said she’d like to buy a hot dog for a homeless person around the corner. She was very surprised and thankful when we insisted she take the dog for free.
The next stop was across the street at Johnny Rockets, which served a South Philly Style Dog with Sharp Provalone, fresh diced Tomatoes and roasted Long Hots.
Our crawl ended at the Bainbridge Street Barrel House, where they were offering two Special Hot Dogs, a Carolina Dog with BBQ Sauce, Slaw & Pickles and a Jalapeño Dog, with fresh Jalapeños and Cheese sauce. Of course we had to try them both.
Joel setup a window display featuring his Hot Dog T-Shirt and Dolls collection at the corner of 4th & Banbridge streets.
He also had a Hot Dog Cart from the 1930s and as well as info about Philly’s Hot Dog Pioneers.
On Friday evening, July 25th, Tracy Kauffman Wood and Brian Kauffman, the grandchildren of Max & Ida Kravits who had a Hot Dog Cart at the corner of 4th & South Street during the 1930s, were on hand to share stories and memories of serving hot dogs at the family’s cart and restaurant.
We also set up a grill and offered Free Hot Dogs to anyone who walked past.
Besides the usual mustard, ketchup, sauerkraut & relish toppings, Tracy Kauffman Wood brought along some homemade Pepper Hash, from the family’s recipe, that was fantastic.
