Springfield, Cozy Dog mentioned in National Geographic magazine

Springfield, Cozy Dog mentioned in National Geographic magazine

National Geographic’s Traveler magazine highlighted Springfield in its March issue, which devoted its pages to “urban places that captivate us.”

While the issue focused on larger cities, Springfield was the subject of a half-page article that mentions everything from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum to the Cozy Dog Drive In. It also features some of the smaller downtown shops and galleries, Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site, the Inn at 835 and the Lincoln Home National Historic Site.

“Springfield, Illinois, is in full glory, celebrating the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth,” writer Sascha Zuger observed.

Special attention, in the form of a photo and caption, is given to the Cozy Dog.

“Hand-dipped, deep-fried, and delish, Cozy Dog Drive In dogs are pure sense-of-place,” Zuger wrote.

    The thing that amazes me, Jack, is knowing how hard you work; how many hours you put in, when the heck do find the time to dig up all this stuff?

    That was in our local newspaper. But otherwise I can't stop (after all the years of radio) reading every news source on line that I can find. Old habits die hard, or maybe never die. And I don't require a lot of sleep.
