Say what? A book all about Coney Island Hot Dogs? You can’t get more Detroit than that.
In “Coney Detroit“, learn all about the traditions, rivalry and history of the restaurants serving this iconic dog from authors Katherine Yung and Joe Grimm.
So, what constitutes a Coney Dog? Natural casing hot dog, all meat chili, white onions and yellow mustard. Simple & delicious!
The book launch is Wednesday April 4th at 5:30 pm, complete with coney dogs from metro-Detroit’s favorite coney islands. This event is open to the public, so RSVP here.
I handpicked these great Cupcake Bakery Logos from 99designs.com. All of these are only $99 each and that includes some customization of colors and putting in your Name and Tagline. How awesome is that? You can also start you own logo “project” and get designers to submit their ideas. Very cool.
