Hot Diggity!

Happy National Hot Dog Day!

There’s a day for everything, and today is the day to honor encased meat.

Did a quick run-through search of my files, and it seems like I’ve photographed the ol’ hot diggity dog a time or two – or at least elements of it.

It seems I like to photograph Abe’s Hot Dogs, a venerable tradition in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area of Northeast Pennsylvania, as well as the Windmill, a venerable tradition at the Jersey Shore.

Windmill LongBranch

Long Branch, New Jersey

This location is in Long Branch, New Jersey, a few scant steps from where Bruce Springsteen lived when he was writing Born To Run. Not sure if he ever grabbed a dog there or not after a late-night gig.

Asbury Park, New Jersey

There’s also a Windmill in Asbury Park. And another classic car outside of a hot dog joint.

And that time in New Orleans, when I got Lucky….

One of the most famous hot dog stands in New Jersey is Rutt’s Hutt, up in Clifton. Can’t say I’ve ever been there, but maybe some day.

Frankly (no pun intended), I don’t have hot dogs too much. Gotta watch the cholesterol and whatnot. But at a ballgame….or on National Hot Dog Day….I gotta have one….or two, while composing this post.
