Following a busy first week of promotion for National Hot Dog Month, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) continued promotional efforts with several major market radio interviews including a lengthy spot on WGN in Chicago as well as stations in San Francisco, Portland and Orlando. Voting for the finalists in the NHDSC's "Hot Dog Bumper Sticker" contest has begun on the NHDSC Facebook page. The person who submitted the slogan with the most votes will win a $100 gift card for their favorite hot dogs, a Curl A Dog spiral hot dog slicer, a NHDSC t-shirt and a designed version of their bumper sticker idea. Meat Institute and NHDSC Vice President of Public Affairs Eric Mittenthal was also invited to speak at the opening of the new Ben's Chili Bowl restaurant in Washington, D.C. Ben's Chili Bowl is the city's iconic hot dog restaurant serving "half smokes" since the 1950s. Other speakers at the event included Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.
