Best dog in the 'burbs
For a summer story in Time out! we want to know where you go when you're hankerin' for a hot dog. Give us the name of your favorite hot dog spot in or around the suburbs and tell us why you like it. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with Top Dog in the subject head or join the conversation at facebook.com/DH.TimeOut. Of those who respond by June 16, one person will be randomly selected to receive hot dog paraphernalia.
