I'll be back home in San Antonio, AirBnBi g a giant historic home in the King William District just south of downtown with some family members. I'll be slinging cocktails and tinned fish, and every evening we'll walk down a block for cocktails at Bar Loretta. There used to be a historic, giant cathedral nearby that doubled as a late night dance club and specialty hot dog joint but sadly they're not in business anymore. But I Googled, and a nephew just recommended, El Chunky also nearby. So El Chunky for me and however many siblings, nieces and nephews I can bring along with me, as well as my 100-year old dad who loves hot dogs (although these will be way too fancy, and expensive, for him lol). Happy Th(Fr)anksgiving y'all!!

Sounds like I'll be making the 3 block walk to Dog Day Afternoon for my first Franksgiving.

Hello Robert,

This year we are in Austin, TX for the holiday and would love your advice on an appropriate parlor to partake in Franksgiving. I've traditionally been a grilled sauerkraut and / or hot dog sauce kinda guy, but I'm considering the somewhat regional "Sonoran" take on the humble dog. Advice and recommendations welcome!

Any suggestions for the Morristown NJ area that aren’t Rutt’s Hut? Enjoy the holiday all!

Tomorrow morning I fly from LAX to Logan to spend a couple of days in Newton & Brookline, but Friday morning we will be driving down to Brooklyn & Manhattan for a couple of days. While I’d like to make it home to Mamaroneck and go to Walter’s (my love for which I have already told you of) it’s not likely to happen, so maybe we will be giving Dog Day Afternoon a try. On the other hand there has been talk of Peter Luger’s being in the cards (since our Thanksgiving will be relatively simple).

Saturday is already blocked off for a late brunch of Murray’s lox, sturgeon, sable, whitefish, etc. at my step-mother’s on the UES. (She and my dad lived at 90th and West End Ave for decades, so brunch will always be about Murray’s)
