    Come join us for a wienie celebration of Chicago hot dogs and hot dog stands. We’ll travel back to the Depression dog days of the 30’s and show the comfort those special sausages and their stands provided during their early years through the hard times of today. From the no-frills success of places like Gene & Jude’s to the mega stands like Portillo’s, Vienna Beef executive Bob Schwartz will focus on the people who make hot dogs, sell ‘em and eat ‘em. And of course our program will be topped with a heavenly Vienna hot dog sampling dished out by our divine speaker with relish.

    Bob Schwartz has been part of the customer development team of the iconic Vienna Beef company for more than 30 years. He will be signing copies of his new book “Never Put Ketchup On A Hot Dog,” which covers a savory slice of hot dog history. Mr. Schwartz will be introduced by our own nationally recognized hot dog authority, Bruce Kraig, PhD, president of the Culinary Historians of Chicago.
