WV Hot Dog News

Dateline Charleston - We have another Sam's Hot Dog Stand closing to report. This time it's the one in the Patrick Street Plaza, and this time it's for real: An angry letter from the landlord on the front door tells the whole world that the proprietors of this ex-hot dog stand owes a bunch of money ($4,500 as of June 28th) and the premises have been locked up tight Inside the soda fountain lights are still on and there are still products chilling in the beverage cooler. I'd imagine there is a bunch of weenies still sitting in a pot of water.

Also of note to Charleston and Huntington area hot dog fans, the PBS special "A Hot Dog Program" will be shown on Channel 33 Wednesday at 9:00PM. The show highlights hot dog culture around the US. No WVHDs are featured, but slaw is discussed during visits to a couple of hot dog joints in Georgia (including The Varsity).

what is y'alls second favorite hot dog style?

For me, I like Cincy-style cheese coneys (like at Skyline and Gold Star).
