Hot Dog of the Week: House of Doggs

Certain things go well with hot dogs.

Baseball ALWAYS goes well with hot dogs...and is the main reason this October I have been negligent on the blog here.

Summer cookouts go hand in hand with hot dogs, as do camping, tailgating, and feeding mass quantities of people.

One other thing that goes well with hot dogs is music.

At the House of Doggs in Traverse City, MI they combine their love of music with their history of hot dog(g)s.

Naming each of their hot dogs after genre's of music or iconic bands, House of Doggs treats its customers to fair prices. Most of their dogs are under three bucks a wiener.

Adorning the restaurant with it's classic music flare truly brings the two worlds of music and hot dogs together.

Enjoy when visiting during the Cherry Festival, or simply on a fall color tour. Heck, is there ever a bad time for a hot dog?

We think not.

Hot Dogs and Lightbulbs

If any of you have followed the Nathan's hot dog contest on July 4th each year, the name Joey Chestnut should ring very clear in your mind.

For those of you who do not follow competitive eating, Chestnut is the Babe Ruth, the Beatles and the Bill Gates of his profession.

Food Service Warehouse conducted a rather humorous study as to what it would take for joey Chestnut to undo the 'damage' he did to his body in his most recent hot dog eating contest.

Hot Dog of the Week: Dig Dog

For all of you hot dog fans, can you picture what a dog is called that has been battered and a stick shish kabobing it?

PLEASE don't say the C word.

If you are from the Marion, VA area it would be called a Dip Dog.

Founded in 1957, Dip Dogs has been serving all beef dogs for a princely sum. Just to give you an idea of their prices, foot longs go for $2.75 each.

They also have quite the menu of not hot dog options ranging from burgers, to breakfast, to custard.

If traveling I-81, swing on in.
