Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, June 02, 2021

Next month, the getting-trendy Fort Greene neighborhood in Brooklyn will be the site of the third-annual Great Hot Dog Cookoff.

To which I may or may not go. I had had it mentally calendared as taking place in June, instead of the actual July 12th date, so I crossed it off early. But now that it’s more than a month away, we’ll see.

What would tempt me mightily to attend: A lineup of weirdo frankfurter creations, more worthy of curious observation than digestion. Not that any of these dishes are sure to appear, but if I had my druthers, I’d love to see this lineup:

- The deep-fried nightmare of The Hamdog

- The high-falutin’ yet fundamentally cheesy Baked Brie Dog

- And finally, the splayed wonder that is the Octodog

The above ordering is, of course, Gold-Silver-Bronze. No taste-testing required.
