to make when someone suggests putting ketchup
on a Chicago-style hot dog
In collaboration with the third grade Chicago history research project, students are exploring the proud tradtion of iconic Chicago cuisine in library. To that end, the library hosted speaker Mark Reitman, PhD (Professor of Hot Dogs) from Hot Dog University, the famous business school out of Vienna Beef. Mr. Reitman spoke to the children about the cultural diversity that goes into every bun of a Chicago-style dog. He also talked about running a food cart in Chicago and gave every child their own vendor hat, gummi dog and hot dog temporary tattoo! Another proud Chicago and foodie moment here at Stone Academy.
