Steve's Snappin' Dogs
International Hot Dog Month kicked off July 1st, and to celebrate it and to kick off the 2nd Annual Chow Down for Charity, Steve's held a media event at Project Angel Heart. I went to check it out, cheer on the eaters, and maybe score some free Thumann hot dogs.
Steve brought the hot dogs!
The table was set for 3 Project Angel Heart staff members to face off against 3 members of the Glendale Raptors rugby team
The local media was there. Photo journalists for 9 (NBC), 7 (ABC), 4 (NBC) set up their lights and cameras.
Table set for 3 on 3 action
Steve presents the head chef at Project Angel Heart with a check to start the charitable giving
It turned out that the rugby players did not show up, so three of us from the assembled crowd got picked. Me, Chef John, and Phil Fears Nothing stepped up for the minute-long photo-op for the news outlets.
Of course on July 11th the qualifiers take place for the 2nd Annual Chow Down for Charity at Steve's. The top 7 from the qualifiers move on to the finals on July 26th.
