Our friends at the Springfield VT, Humane Society are having their Third Annual Southern Vermont Hot Dog Cook-Off on the lawn behind the Stone Hearth Inn on Route 11 in Chester, VT on Sunday, August 10 from 1 to 4 PM. 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.
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.
Next stop was at Jack Frost in Glenside, PA.
Next we stopped by Denny’s Dogs in Hatboro, PA.
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.
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.
We followed that with a stop at Primo Hoagies South Street to try the Sausage Sandwich.
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.
