Sonoran Hot Dog! The Primanti's of south east Arizona

While visiting my friend Marissa in Tucson, AZ, I had the pleasure of visiting El Guero Canelo, the home of the now-famous-via-the-food-network Sonoran Hot Dog.  The in-house promotional materials, and abundant pride and friendliness of this place reminded me of Pittsburgh eateries in many ways, not the least of which was their over-stuffed, overflowing hot dog which is akin to Primanti's sandwiches.

Below you will find nice homemade T-shirts and printed/laminated additional menu items behind the registers.  Not to mention 6 varieties of Agua Fresca, a delicious, natural juice-infused water beverage from Mexico.

I love these Mexican flag picnic benches.  

Here's the meal...

...and here's the Sonoran Hot Dog in all it's glory

Gotta love a place that offers sliced radishes in their condiment bar, and a hot dog that's named after the desert in which it is made.

xoxo, Tucson!

Bye Bye Jeff Reed

Today, the Steelers have officially cut Jeff Reed from their roster. 

In lieu of a photo post for this blog entry, I suggest you do a google image search for 'jeff reed'.  Anyone feeling ambivalent about the loss of our kicker of 9 years should be comforted by the results of this image search.

Its been fun, #3.  We bid you a fond farewell.
