Street Wieners

The almighty Hot Dog, Frankfurter, Banger, Glizzy, Tube Steak, Coney, Weenie, Frank or what we like to call locally “Wiener” is one of America’s most cherished foods.  Consisting of grilled, steamed or baked sausage usually, it’s served in the slit of a sliced bun and topped with condiments that make it ever so tasty.  Technically known as a sandwich of sorts, although the National Hot Dog Council has declared that a dog is not a sandwich, Merriam Webster on the other hand states it is indeed a sandwich.  All we know is that they are delicious no matter what they …

3rd Annual Lincolnville Porchfest

The event was rescheduled and later …
