Why Hot Dogs and Wine?

Everyone in New York calls dachshunds “hot dogs.” I have two hot dogs (they’re more like sausages, let’s be honest) named Doug and Bruce. That’s Doug carrying a bottle of wine in the header of this blog. So, that’s one reason for the name.

But the real origin of Hot Dogs and Wine came about one night back in my early 20s. I was at home by myself, hungry and left with little food in the house. But there was hot dogs. And, there was cheap red wine. To this day, I still recall how delightfully surprised I was by this unlikely combination. I also remember thinking, “Hot Dogs and Wine would make a great name for something.” So, that’s what I call this blog. It’s nothing fancy. But it just might surprise you.
