National Hot Dog Day, Gorgeous Grandma Day
Tuesday, July 23 is National Hot Dog Day. Pictured above is a Chicago style hot dog (image obtained here). Trust us, there is a hot dog in there somewhere.
You can find almost anything on a Chicago-style hot dog. There is one big exception: What you won't find on a Chicago style hot dog is ketchup. There are places in Chicago where -- if you are older than about 10, at least -- you will be publicly shamed if you attempt to put ketchup on a hot dog. (No, we don't know why this is.)
Nor do we know why Tuesday is Gorgeous Grandma Day. We just know that, the older we get, the more appealing the idea is to us.
