National Hot Dog Day!

Happy National Hot Dog Day!  According to the Hot Dog and Sausage Council, we’ll eat about SEVEN BILLION of them just in the three-plus months between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  That’s 818 hot dogs a second.

Los Angeles eats more of them than any other city, followed by New York, Dallas, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

But per capita, cities in North Carolina dominate the list.  Raleigh-Durham is first.  Then it’s Greensboro, North Carolina . . . Buffalo, New York . . . Paducah, Kentucky . . . and Charlotte, North Carolina is fifth.

A few national chains have deals today.  Here’s where you can get free or discounted dogs . . .
