    There was an article in Wednesday's Star Ledger which discussed the closing of Tabatchnik's. Syd's was also talked about. The article even mentioned our hot dog tour. I am having trouble finding a link. If I can't get one, I'll include some quotes from the article.

      John, can't seem to find the Star Ledger article, but I did come us with this one.

      Should be good for Syd's.

                That's great, Benzee! I just checked to see if I can get this station online with my old computer (I can). But I'll be out tonight on the Munchmobile. Let me know when you will be on again.

                  Hello John ,

                  I will be on the show every Tues from 6 - 7 pm .
                  I was the cohost with Uncle Buck and we had a few guests so we did not discuss Roadfood or the tour .
                  I would like to do a segment on it one of these Tues. and get a few Roadfooders to call the station .
                  Let me know if you can call in next Tues , or any other Hot Doogers and we will set this up .

                  Benzee

                    If I'm home Tuesday, I will definitely call in. Although we go out on the Munchmobile every Tuesday, we may not this coming Tuesday because we will be going to New York on Sunday. I will find out our schedule for next week on Sunday, so if we don't go out, I'll be home and will call in.

                      John ,

                      Sounds good , if you can try the call in at about 645 pm .
                      We have a few guests and have another call in , so this should be good .

                      Start sending in those checks everyone for the Hot Dog Tour - Sept 16th

                        Benzee,

                        Unfortunately, we did not go to New York Sunday. Hopefully, we will soon. We wound up going to a few places in the southern part of the state. We will not be going out Tuesday, so I will call in.

                            Benzee,

                            Thanks for having me on the show. I really enjoyed listening and then calling in. You are definitely a natural for radio. I can tell that you guys have a lot of fun doing it. I'll be tuning in regularly and urge others to do so.

                                      We still can't commit yet - trying to re-arrange our schedule. Will let you know asap. Shirts look great! And Benzee and John, you are doing a great job organizing this, as usual! Really hope we can make it. Sue

                                          Checks are coming in , so do not get shut out of the 3rd Annual jaunt

                                          Coney Island Lou has made up some nice shirts

                                          We should have radio personality Uncle Buck with us doing a live remote for WTBQ 1110 am .

                                                      Signman ,

                                                      I put you down on the list . Sorry I missed the Crabstock but work got in the way . Was so looking forward to that and the ballgame .

                                                      CI Lou , nothing semi - official about those shirts , great job , and if you want to call in or visit the studio next week let me know we will get you on the air again.

                                                          Benzee -

                                                          I did not disappear from the face of the earth - just been off on my own food adventures this summer.

                                                          Around Jersey and Philly for hot dogs, cheese steaks, roast pork sandwiches, and breakfast places. To upstate NY for barbecue chicken in the southern tier, Buffalo for beef on weck and wings, Syracuse for Dinosaur's BBQ, Utica for some of their unique cuisine, and the finger lakes for hot truck sandwiches and a great cheeseburger. Also, down to Johnson City, TN for east Tennessee BBQ an up to Cincinnati for chili 5 ways, some great ice cream, and goetta.

                                                          My check in in the mail. I will be meeting the bus in Kenilworth.

                                                          If anyone is interested in my some explorations I will be glad to expound on them in another thread.
