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.

Hot Diggity Owner Bringing Dogs to England

hot-dog-britainZagat has the story on Hot Diggity’s Keith Garabedian’s impending expansion into the United Kingdom. Garabedian was approached by a British restaurateur to open Big Dog, a hot dog spot in Birmingham, UK.

Like South Street’s Hot Diggity, the shop will offer unique toppings and housemade dipping sauces. Zagat reports that some of the toppings will include British comfort food into the toppings, so think of things like black pudding and piccalilli relish.
