Rel­ish in Hot Dogs

Where Chicago - - WHERE NOW -

If there was an of­fi­cial food for the city of Chicago, there is no doubt it would be the hot dog. The prized meat on a bun was first de­buted at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago and the love af­fair has only grown ever since. On Au­gust 10-12, the Chicago His­tory Museum will cel­e­brate this re­la­tion­ship and go into depth about the lo­cal roots of the frank­furter in the 6th An­nual Chicago Hot Dog Fest, spon­sored by Vi­enna Beef. Sev­eral of the area’s best food ven­dors will be present, of­fer­ing up their own unique cre­ations—eater­ies sched­uled to ap­pear in­clude Edzo’s, Robin­son’s, Fran­nie’s, Pin­stripes and By­ron’s among oth­ers. The out­door fes­ti­val (held just north of the museum at Stock­ton and LaSalle Drive) will also have plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing in­flat­a­bles, games and in­ter­ac­tive ex­hibits and dis­cus­sions about Hot Dog His­tory, the World’s Fair, Base­ball in Chicago and Chicago Blues. There will also be a range of mu­sic all week­end. That in­cludes Wig­gle­worms and School of Rock as well as the ‘80s hair metal trib­ute Hair­banger’s Ball and the Trip­pin’ Bil­lies (a Dave Matthews cover band). www.chicago­his­tory.org/chicago­hot­dogfest.
