What a waste of money. Jimmy Carbone chose the worst venue possible, a rabbit warren of tiny rooms, and he oversold tickets with no regard for the safety or comfort of guests. It was impossible to enjoy food when crammed in like a crowded subway car.

The 10 Best Chicago-Style Hot Dogs

That "USA Today" article was actually done by the Daily Meal and just republished there. Also, yes the duck and sauternes sausage counts as a hot dog.
