1) Brother Jim checks in with a few pix from his recent visit to Cleveland's Doghouse.

2) Professor Bruce Kraig's new book "Man Bites Dog" (Hot Dog Culture in America) by Altamira Press is out now and we have a copy in our hot little hands. I haven't had a chance to read it yet (I'm up to my armpits in Social Security's alligator pit, as usual), but it's a beautiful, comprehensive book with loads of great color photos by the Professor's collaborator / co-author Patty Carroll.

It's 191 pages, with 5 major sections including Lore & History, Democratic Food & Popular Culture, Hot Dog People, Emporia and Doggie Styles. The last section includes a number of recipes and we hope to try a few of them in the next couple of weeks.

3) We caught "Hot Dog Paradise 2" (2013) on the tube last night and advise you to check your local listings...
