to take with me to Wisconsin next week. Apparently, my brother has been told that Nathan's is THE BEST hot dog and wants me to get some for him to try. As you may already know from my post of about a month ago, we will be arriving in Chicago on Wednesday, 5/9 (and I have my list of all the wonderful reqs right next to my ticket!!) and will be staying at the Days Inn in Lincoln Park North (thank you for that, as well! - you guys are the best!). We will be driving from Chicago to Hayward, WI where my brother lives and celebrating my niece's 1st birthday with a BBQ. I will be making Carne Asada and we will be having Brats (of course).
However, my brother has tasked me with procuring Nathan's Natural Casings dogs for him somewhere along the way. I have determined that somewhere in a big city would probably be best - hence, this post. I have already told him that I will also be bringing some of the much-acclaimed-by-my-Chicago-transplant-friends-as-well-as-people-on-this-board: the Vienna Beef Dogs (they come with natural casing, right). I think I can get them at the Vienna Beef Factory outlet. I will also get some sport peppers and the neon green relish there.
So, any advice on where (preferrably near the Lincoln Park area, but wherever is fine) I can find Nathan's?
Thank you in advance for your wonderful support and help! You are the best.
