Today is the day to celebrate that painfully expensive cut of steak, the Filet Mignon. It’s hard to think of the Filet Mignon as a manly meat, considering it is French for “dainty fillet.” Nonetheless, it is quite tasty and really every day is a day for tasty meat.
It seems as though our great nation cannot agree upon a date to celebrate National Hot Dog Day. I’ve seen websites claiming it falls on any day between 19th and 23rd of July, but there is certainly one thing we can agree on: July is truly the month for hot dogs. It starts with Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4th, and continues throughout the month with strings of backyard barbecues, baseball games and the sheer enjoyment of that magical tube meat. So before the month ends, be sure to get your share of hot dogs, you’ll be happy you did.
