Nothing says “Chicago streetscape” more than our hometown hot dog stands. And no one is more intricately woven into Chicago’s hot dog heritage than Doug Sohn. Although he recently closed his renowned sausage emporium, Hot Doug’s, Sohn still reigns supreme in the world of sausage. Join Sohn for an irreverent trip through the history of hot dogs, his restaurant, and the many patrons–both the famous and the ordinary–who declared him the king of dogs. Book sale & signing.
