      Sept. 23rd is a Sunday. September 22nd is Saturday and it's Yom Kippur the holiest day of the year in the Jewish religion.
      Is the tour set in stone for that date?

        I have the date for the September tour written down for Sat, September 15th, and have had it in my book for months. When did it change??

          It was always Saturday Sept. 15th. I made arrangements months ago to have this day off. Are you sure you didn't mistakenly type in the 23rd?

            Check the 8th page of this thread towards the bottom. The 15th was announced as the day.

              I think Benzee has confused the proposed mini-meet for west NJ to be held on june 23 with the 4th annual Jersey tour to be held on September 15.

              Sorry, but I'll have to back out of the June 23rd tour, but I'm planning to be a participant in the September 15th tour.

              cheers, John

                  You had me scared. I'm looking forward to the 15th. I've been busy lately but fortunately have Sunday and Monday (Memorial Day) off this weekend. I will compose a letter to Mark DeCarlo of the Travel Channel in an effort to have our tour covered.

                  Because of my schedule I will not be able to attend the June 23rd tour. I have a rotating day off which I work almost every week, especially in the warmer months when a lot of people I work with go on vacation. On a rare occasion when I am not needed on my day off, I'll run to a hot dog restaurant out of my immediate area when I can. Other than that, I go to out of my area places when I'm on vacation. I like the idea of occasional small tours like the one in June. Not everyone can make the big tours and not everyone likes to go to a lot of places in one day. I enjoyed the Hudson Valley Tour and am sure that you will enjoy the West Jersey Tour, especially Charlies Pool Room. We all have different schedules, but I think it's great if even a few of us can get together from time to time.

                  Where I live in Union County, there are a number of hot dog establishments within 5 miles of each other. Galloping Hill Inn, Tommy's, Jerry's, Manny's Texas Weiners, Father & Son, Dees Hut, and Sal's, are 7 places within 5 miles. Of course, I wouldn't neccesarily look to hit all 7 in one day. And just going to Jimmy Buffs in East Hanover is a mini tour in itself. Sometimes it's good to just go to one place and have a full meal there. I'm off the week of June 25th (Monday). On Saturday the 30th, I will be attending a Mets game. But I plan on eating hot dogs at least one day during the week. If a couple of you can get off during the week and want to eat some dogs, let me know. I'm up for anything.

                    i may be up for both tour de hot dogs! so far june 23 is open on our summer calendar. i may be able to twist the wife's arm to go. i know for a fact(since i have been inside)that she will not step into toby's cup as she has a weak stomach and the grease smell freaks her out. meanwhile i suck that air in like a vacuum! as it gets closer i will have a better idea... now i am getting hungry!

                        Count me in. I live not far from Pburg and would enjoy the tour. My wife is a 'maybe' at this point.

                              I''m 50/50 for 6/23. Saturdays are tough for me to free up, and I already have one other Saturday "free" in June (see below). Since there's no bus or anything to reserve, hopefully you can give me a couple of weeks to commit one way or the other. ---Ken

                              PS: Saturday 6/9 I will be driving home from a Friday business trip to Harrisburg Pa. I plan to stay overnight Friday in H'burg (so I can do the brewpub scene without driving)and eat my way home on Saturday. I will be posting a couple of queries to help me with planning. For you Hot Dog guys, does anyone know if Secrist's Hot Dogs (Dallastown Pa, I think) are still being made? About 15 years ago I bought a package of these on someone's recommendation. 6 to a pound, and some of the best store bought dogs I've ever had.

                              Thanks, hope to be able to make the 23rd.

                                        Directions to June 23rd Mini Meet

                                        Ok - here are the directions. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing the munch through some great dogs and some great places to eat them.

                                        I have set out the directions from some major locations. If anyone needs directions from anywhere else, let me know.

                                        From NYC
                                        Get across the river into to NJ via a tunnel or bridge. Take the Jersey Turnpike south to I-78.

                                        Take I-78 west to to exit 24 (Route 523). Get off at exit 24 and turn left (south) on Rte 523. Follow Rte 523 south for 2.0 miles to Rte 22. Turn right (west) on Rte 22 and go 2.9 miles to Stewart's Drive In. It is an orange building and it will be on the other side of the road.

                                        As you get to Stewart's stay in the left hand lane. About 100 yards past Stewart's there is a U-turn across the median. Take that U-turn and go back to Stewart's. If you miss that U-turn there is another one about .2 miles further down the road.

                                        From Southern NY State
                                        Take the NY State Thruway south to the state line. As you get to NJ follow the signs to I-287 south.

                                        Follow I-287 south to I-78, exit 21.

                                        Take I-78 west to to exit 24 (Route 523). Get off at exit 24 and turn left (south) on Rte 523. Follow Rte 523 south for 2.0 miles to Rte 22. Turn right (west) on Rte 22 and go 2.9 miles to Stewart's Drive In. It is an orange building and it will be on the other side of the road.

                                        As you get to Stewart's stay in the left hand lane. About 100 yards past Stewart's there is a U-turn across the median. Take that U-turn and go back to Stewart's. If you miss that U-turn there is another one about .2 miles further down the road.

                                        From Eastern PA
                                        Take I-78 east into NJ. In NJ get off at exit 18, Rte 22 east. Stay on Rte 22 east for 3.2 miles and you will see Stewart's on your right.

                                        From Philadelphia
                                        Take I-95 north out of Philly and into NJ. Get off at exit 4. Turn left (north) on Rte 31. Take Rte 31 north to where it joins Rte 202, about 12 miles.

                                        Follow the combined Routes 31 & 202 north to the Flemington circle, about 5 miles. Stay in the left lane at the circle and take Rte 31 north out of the circle.

                                        Follow Rte 31 about 11 miles to I-78. Get in the right lane and take I-78 east from Rte 31 for 1 mile to exit 18, Rte 22 east.

                                          Sorry guys, but I'm going to have to pass on the 6/23 mini meet. I just can't free up that day. Hopefully someone can post pictures so I can see what I missed. Enjoy the day, it sounds like a great tour! --Ken

                                              Say hello to John and Joe at Charlies Pool Room for me. I might make it up there the next week when I'm on vacation. Have a great time everyone, and make sure to post opinions and pictures.

                                                  Roll Call for Mini Tour on Saturday

                                                  I would like to double check who to expect on Saturday.

                                                  So far I have:

                                                  Benzee & family
                                                  Brookquarry
                                                  Coney Island Lou
                                                  Foobuc

                                                  I am looking forward to seeing all of you. Are there any changes to the list?

                                                    Sorry for lack of posting on this. Lately business has been picking up so i have not been on the computer as much. I found out 2 weeks back that my sister is having an engagement party from 1230-3pm in Livingston so i am out. It is going to kill me but i guess i should be there for my sister. Post pics and i will have to meet all of you in Sept. unless you do another mini one before then.

                                                        My thoughts are with you for a full recovery. Health issues need to be taken care of immediately. Make sure you get better quickly so we can see you at a future event.

                                                        We will miss you on Saturday.

                                                          Roll Call for Saturday's Mini Meet

                                                          We have lost several attendees for Saturday. I am still looking forward to hosting this event. It is early summer and the drive along the Delaware River will be beautiuful.

                                                          All those still planning to attend please let me know.

                                                          Thanks in advance.
