This Bites: The Perfect Food Known as the Hot Dog

And you’ll hear about Miller Park’s new concessions menu for the 2018 baseball season.

On our last March 2018 episode of This Bites (which runs Friday mornings at 8 a.m. on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee), my pal/fellow food freak Tarik Moody and I talk about some topics that will remind you of spring, at least the first one: hot dogs. The Milwaukee Brewers’ home opener is Monday, April 2, and that means big-time sausage consumption.

In the new April issue of Milwaukee Magazine, I offer a round-up of local places that serve up a pretty fine hot dog, and you’ll hear about some of them on This Bites. They include the basic Chicago dog at Martino’s and the chili cheese dog at Vanguard

That leads us to the new foods available this season at Miller Park. (Think smothered chips and dumplings, but not together.) And don’t forget that Johnsonville is the new  Brewers Sausage Race sponsor, so expect some Johnsonville sausage visibility on the menu. 

Listen to our podcast! Right here, come on!
