Celebrate National Hot Dog Day 2022 (July 20) with free (and cheap) hot dogs! Deals and freebies are subject to change.
Today is National Hot Dog Day, a day I can still celebrate thanks to the book I never read in high school.
Okay, some backstory.
I was very studious in high school. I read every book assigned to us, except one: Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle. But, I had a very good reason to not read it: At backyard barbecues, I only eat hot dogs. If I read a book about the meat packaging industry and the rat bones that go into hot dogs, well, I wouldn’t eat them ever again. And then at barbecues, I’d be sitting with a plate of potato salad, fielding questions about why I’m on a starch-only diet and would I like some meat.
So, I read the Cliff Notes, and I got a 101 on the test and no one was the wiser.
And I still eat hot dogs.
I tell you this all today because July 20, 2022 is National Hot Dog Day, and you can get a bunch of free and cheap hot dogs to celebrate.
