They’ve shown you theirs, now the team at Samson’s Gourmet Hot Dogs wants you to show them yours. Your hotdog creation that is.
On August 22, Samson’s is inviting customers to come on in and make their very own specialty hotdog with an opportunity for it to be featured on the restaurant’s menu for the next year. For $5, guests will design and name their own hotdog, which will be posted to the Samson’s Facebook page for a week. The weenie with the most likes at the end of that time will be crowned the champion of Samson’s “Show Us Your Weenie” contest. The winner will be announced at Samson’s 1 Year Anniversary Party on September 27, and also receive one free hotdog per month for the next year.
