Every day is a holiday for some sort of food these days, and while some remain skeptical of such excessive celebration, you have to admit: it can be fun. Burgers? Fries? Baked Beans? Time to party (or just read articles like this one...) If you didn't know, today is National Hot Dog Day, and--before you roll your eyes at me--get this: some places are offering some cool specials today. We included them below.

Hula Dog items are as interesting in taste as they are architecturally: buns are impaled on a ramrod straight steel pike and heated from the inside which leaves a hole for the dog. Buns here come in flavors like FBI Honey Wheat and Taro Bacon, and the dogs are dressed with with a secret sauce and relishes made with mango, papaya, and other Hawaiian flavors.

Upcoming Events

Wursthaus has great beers from the faraway lands of Belgium and Germany, fries that Charles stands by, and a selection of sausages hard to find anywhere else in Santa Ana. If you're bored with chicken or pork, go for a rabbit or lamb sausage that'll be warmly squeezed into a warm roll. And vegan options are also available for your Earth-friendly companions: there's meatless Mexican Chipotle, Smoked Apple & Sage, and Italian dogs.
