|Will one of Hot Diggity's dogs win the day?|
Dogs from 11 restaurants will battle for the title of Philly’s best, as judged by a panel of that includes Tony Luke, Jr. (Tony Luke’s), WMMR’s Matt Cord, journalist Drew Lazor and this writer, among other folks who eat for a living. There’s a also an amateur toppings competition, in case 11 different franks aren’t enough to satisfy. Philadelphia Brewing and 5 O’Clock Brew will offer cold beer, and live music will play throughout the noon-4 PM event.
Advance VIP tickets are $25 per person (here), and include 12 tickets for food and drink - any or all of the competing dogs will be up for grabs. Starting at 1 PM, you can also buy tickets on the day of the contest: 10 for $25, four for $10 or two for $5 (if you’re just strolling by and want a quick bite, this last option will do nicely). Check out the participating restaurants below and come join us on Saturday.
