Kicking off National Hot Dog Month with free Hot Dogs & Pretzels and a reading of the Mayor’s Proclimation

Free Hot Dogs and PretzelsWe opened our Hot Dog History Display, at 703 South 4th St, with free Hot Dogs from the Famous 4th Street Deli and Philly Soft Pretzels for everyone who stopped by.

We also had a cardboard Hot Dog and several Hot Dog lovers stopped to have their pictures taken. In fact, here’s a photo of me posing as Hot Dog Guy.

Soul Survivors I also read the Mayor’s Proclamation that Philly would again be proudly celebrating National Hot Dog month during July, 2016.
