I know there have been many discussions on this board about the merits of local hot dogs. Of course, not everyone agrees on this topic but one company, Grote and Wiegel always received a lot of kudos along with the likes of Mucke, etc. Today, I received an email from Doogies, a renowned hot dog, cheesesteak and fried food emporium on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington, CT. Doogie sold a lot of two foot hot dogs and dogs of other sizes and was probably one of G&W's biggest customers. Doogie reports the sad news that G&W is no more, out of business. They will be missed. RIP, G&W.
