The L-Tron team celebrated National Hot Dog Day (& Nate’s Birthday) this week
Wednesday, July 18th was National Hot Dog Day, the perfect day to celebrate franks, dawgs, or sausages (whichever name you prefer). The L-Tron team came together on Friday to share delicious food, with most of the staff bringing in their favorite types of hot dogs. We had a large assortment, with everything from red hots to white hots, to vegan hot dogs and buffalo chicken sausages. RAD even made his famous ‘Mexican Street Corn.’ Other team members contributed potato salad, pasta salad, chips, Cheetos and egg salad – we had enough delicious food to feed an army.
Thank you to Ken for taking care of all of the grilling. It was exciting to use our brand new grill for the first time.
The team also celebrated Nate’s birthday with cupcakes (raspberry white chocolate & Bailey’s) and cake pops from Gourmet Goodies. We certainly love to eat at the L-Tron office.

About Hot Dog Day
Approximately 9 billion hot dogs are sold in the U.S. each year, with 26 million of those being sold at baseball stadiums across the country (holidayscalendar.com). Hot dogs even have their own governing body – the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC). The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council created National Hot Dog Day, and the first celebration took place in 1991. The day typically coincides with hot dog lunch on Capital Hill – usually the 3rd Wednesday in July each year. The NHDSC shares hot dog facts, culture and history, and even provide hot dog day planning guides and resources on where you can order sausages and dogs.
Some of the strangest hot dog varieties we could find;
- Mac & Cheese Hot Dogs
- Nacho Hot Dogs
- Pizza Hot Dogs
- Wonton Hot Dogs (aka Hot Dog egg rolls)
- Carrot Dogs (available at one of our favorite local restaurants – the Carrot Company)
- Peach Salsa Hot Dogs
- Reuben Hot Dogs
