Mini, jumbo, skinless, boiled, grilled, or deep fried in cornmeal - everyone likes a good hot dog. Today is National Hot Dog day and here's a way to devour some free - and really cheap - hot dogs today.  How you dress up that dog is your call (I won't hate on the ketchup users) as this is a day for celebration - not judgement.

I'm partial to a nice all-beef grilled Hebrew National on a steamed bun with a thin line of yellow mustard and and even thinner spread of relish, but to each his own.

Best places to get hot dogs in the Capital Region
