It was 10 degrees in Syracuse, New York today. For visitors and out-of-towners, this may seem like a day to stay 'inside', but to us locals, when the snow stops falling and the wind stops its blustery blowing, we welcome the chance to get 'outside'.
Everyone has certain cravings as Spring fever sets in, and mine is the taste of summer... because if Spring is coming then summer is not far behind. I can get my craving fix all year round in Central New York, no matter the weather, at the Hofmann Hot Haus!
The Hofmann hot dog itself is an icon around these parts, dating back to its origination over 130 years ago when Frank W. Hofmann arrived in Syracuse, New York from Bromberg, Germany. The company has since expanded into a national business and is dubbed as "America's Greatest Hot Dog."
There are three Hofmann Hot Haus restaurants in Central New York and each bring smiling faces and quick customer service, along with the many tastes of summer, such as mac salad, pasta salad, german potato salad, franks, snappy's, and Byrne Dairy chocolate milk (which is a must with every dog).
Well, I've had my satisfying fix and now all that's left to do is wait to hear the birds return - so I know spring is really on the way!
