Are hot dogs sandwiches?
The great John Hodgman and I are embroiled in a feud over that very question. I say yes, he says no. He's even talked trash about me on his podcast.
On November 10 at the Bell House in Brooklyn, we'll meet face-to-face for the first time to settle this once and for all, in a debate moderated by WNYC's Brooke Gladstone, host of On The Media. The debate will be taped for a future episode of The Sporkful podcast.
Also, legendary food critic Mimi Sheraton and I will respond to listener questions about food and eating. (Mimi's latest book is called 1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die.) And I'll interview the husband-and-wife teams behind The Good Fork restaurant and The Chipper Truck. What's it like to run a restaurant with your spouse? We'll find out.
Plus live music from Mamie Minch, food trucks! Nuchas empanadas, the Chipper Truck, and a special treat -- hot dogs from the one and only Walter's of Mamaroneck, NY, which is a nationally registered historic landmark! The whole evening will be MC'd by the one and only Crazy Legs Conti, world famous competitive eater.
