This Saturday, July 19th, the 3rd Annual Dog Days of Summer Cook-Off is back and bigger than ever. Last year’s event featured 11 restaurants and food trucks, and this year’s will feature 20. The judges’ decision will be much more difficult and as a visitor, your stomach will be much more full.
Starting at 1 p.m., guests are welcome to sample the hot dogs, enjoy craft beer from Victory Brewing Company, jam out to live music and even vote for their favorite dog of the day. General admission is free, but food/drinks tickets cost $10 for 4 and $30 for 15. Or, if you’re looking for that VIP treatment, spend $30 and get early access at noon, a VIP gift, and 20 food/drink tickets. Proceeds will go to the preservation of the Headhouse Square Shambles.

That was a fun month, wasn’t it? Whether you enjoy soccer or not, the World Cup is a great every-four-years excuse to leave work early and maybe pay attention to a game featuring players you probably haven’t heard of. And though the U.S. went out in the Round of 16, all in all it was a fun month of occasional day-drinking and semi-occasional goal-scoring.
Yesterday’s World Cup Final, which saw Germany eek out a 1-0 victory over Argentina with a goal in the second extra time actually drew pretty big crowds to public viewing parties in Philadelphia. And not just at The Canstatter Club in the Far Northeast!

You know what would make any 28-day dry aged New York strip steak even better? Hot dogs. At least that was the working theory last night, at the 26th Foobooz Open Stove Night at COOK. The battle went down between up-and-comers Geno Betz of Stateside, assisted by Blaise Sideris, and Alex Busch of Brauhaus Schmitz, assisted by Dan Britt.
So let’s see how it all shook out, shall we?
