We've been thinking a lot about hot dogs over here, and not just because July is National Hot Dog Month. My colleague and Counter Culture columnist, Al Pierleoni, recently became my new BFF after bringing me an amazing Chicago-style hot dog from Heavenly Dog in Elk Grove. Read my pal Al's review of Heavenly Dog soon in "Counter Culture," which runs each Friday in the Bee's Ticket section.
And here's another reason to say "hooray!" for hot dogs: All Wienerschnitzel outlets are giving away a free chili dog on Tuesday from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. Or if you aren't down with chili dogs, Wienerschnitzel you can opt for a free Tastee Freez small cone. Apparently, July also doubles as National Ice Cream Month. Yay for marketing maneuvers disguised as national holidays!
