More About This Book

Overview

Travel through Chicago's neighborhoods and suburban communities both past and present with an eye on the passion and the people behind Chicago hot dog stands. With a preface by Joe Mantegna, star of stage, screen and television and a a foreword by Chicago's famed news anchor, Bob Sirott, the book focuses on how these hot dog stands can get into your soul. The first edition of the book proved not only to be a fun read, but kind of a year book of sorts that many folks have taken to their favorite stands for an autograph with the hope of making their own hot dog stand memories. In keeping with that, our Collector's Edition perpetuates that approach by including a Chicago-style hot dog stand directory with nearly 200 Chicago-area listings and over 100 more out of town Chicago hot dog ambassadors listed by state. The second edition also features neighborhood, suburban and national maps as well as many additional stories, pictures, and updates. With more than three-quarters of a century of hot dog love and lore to build on, the book also takes a glimpse at what's hot now and expected in the near future. Dragging It Through The Garden is the look and taste of the Chicago-style hot dog with yellow mustard, white chopped onions, green relish, red tomato slices, a pickle spear, a couple of sport peppers, and a dash of celery salt, and you're ready to go. Nowhere on that list will you find ketchup, and as Chicago White Sox Chairman, Jerry Reinsdorf, said on a recent television show called The Club - Thou shalt not put ketchup on a hot dog. So, have one with everything, sit back, and enjoy the book.

    was looking for a book like this

    I stopped in for a hot dog at a new place that just opened in Glenview, and a copy of this book was on the counter. I asked if I could look at this book while I dined. I made the comment to the owner that I had being looking for a book like this just recently. I'm ordering several for gifts and one for my self. The pictures are great of all the hot dog stands in Chicago that I know and love. And ' Never Put Ketchup on a Hot Dog' It's my opinion and I just might be right

    I do put ketchup on a hot dog!

    Love this book. Being from Chicago where we have some of the best hot dogs in the country, my husband and I had to take a trip down memory lane.

    When my son-in-law started talking about possibley opening a hot dog stand, we got him this for his birthday. It was a big hit.

    And while I do occasionnally put ketchup on a hot dog, I don't think it diminishes anything.
