Chicago Hot Dogs

Detroit Photographer Thomas Kirby

Here in Detroit we have Coney dogs, Coney Island hot dogs. Like our neighbor to the North’s dish of poutine, there is no pretense of health. I suppose you could argue hot dogs themselves are not all that healthy. But when you smother them in chili, mustard and onions you reach a new level. And, like doughnuts, bacon, and all unhealthy foods, they are delicious. Chicago Dogs on the other hand at least have the air of being healthy, with their vegetables, pickles, and the like. Lots of fun to shoot with a super client and crew.
