This week is a special celebration! July is National Hot Dog Month, and the Lounge LOVES hot dogs so they brought in THE Hot Dog Top Dog, himself, Eric Mittenthal! He is the President of the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council.

Scheduling made it so Richey and Little Matt were both unable to join in the fun, but Barry, a friend of the Lounge, was able to jump in and carry on in their stead!

The conversation centered on... OF COURSE, the hot dog!

Sam tells a story that links him & the council from when he taught in a school years ago. SMALL WORLD!

Does ketchup belong on a hot dog? Is a hot dog a sandwich? What about BBQ sauce? Is shredded cheese better than liquid cheese? Is it ever OK to eat a chili dog with a fork? There are TONS of questions, and Eric talks about all of the crazy ones that have been posed to him in his years as the Top Dog.

Sam actually gets one in that Eric says has never been asked of him! We THINK it's a "good question," since that was Eric's response!

Eric talks about the work the council does to promote awareness of certain things in the hot dog and sausage world, and Barry brings up a common myth about hot dogs.

The conversation was great, and we feel we now have a Lounge Hot Dog Expert, in Eric!
