After writing a blog post about hot dogs, I was compelled to have one for dinner last night. We were out running an errand and, lo and behold, hound ourselves on Milwaukee Ave. As soon as my kids realized where we were, a shout went up for "Superdawg!"
While we sat at a table and watched the sun set behind Maurie and Flaurie, I realized that I completely forgot to mention Superdawg in my post about hot dogs at weddings.
This is an institution from my Chicago childhood - I can't believe the omission! I'm hanging my head in shame right now.
So, I offer my sincerest apologies to Superdawg. And Maurie and Flaurie, those adorable giant mascots.
Naturally, I mentioned that it would be pretty cool to have a wedding at Superdawg. My husband joked that I could do the ceremony over the drive-in intercoms. (I don't think so.)
When I got home, curiosity got the best of me and I researched the Superdawg wedding idea. And guess what! A couple just got married at the newest Superdawg location in Wheeling!
According to an article in the Daily Herald, just two weeks ago, Brittany and Eddie McKee became the first couple married at Superdawg.
Way to go, Brittany and Eddie!
Now, if there's anyone interested in being the first couple to be married at the Superdawg in Chicago, call me! I know a Celebrant who would love to create a cool ceremony for you.
(Um.... I mean me, just FYI)
