UPDATE: 2008 Columbus Summer Chili-Dog Challenge!

Dear readers, you may recall my previous post announcing my chili-dog extravaganza. Here's an update, in the form of hastily jotted notes from the front lines:
  • I've gone off the reservation, hitting a couple of joints not covered in Alive's original article. the Blue Danube has an *okay* chili-dog, but the weiner is massive, so much so that after 62% of it, you're either bored with the taste or highly uncomfortable.
  • I know lots of folks swear by Skyline Chili, but I can't get behind that alternate-universe, bizarro "chili sauce" syrup they put on their coneys--after eating two, I feel like I need an insulin shot.
  • Rad Dog's all-vegan chili-dog was surprisingly good, and eating it while walking around the Wednesday farmer's market/craft fair in downtown Columbus made for a nice experience. Two minor complaints: too much chili (especially for eating on foot), and veggie dogs could use some sort of "casing" to give them a more believable texture.
  • To all the haters out there: I *can so* eat chili-dogs and still lose weight.
More to come...

  • i know, i know... but whenever i eat a chili-dog, i don't have the presence of mind to get a picture. i get a little engrossed.

  • maybe the chili dog challenge could be revised slightly, with an increased budget, so that the first chili dog is for satiation and the second is for photography and, uh, further satiation. maybe tums could sponsor the challenge? :)

    where is the next stop on the challenge tour?!?!
