Hello all ,
Great tour once again , photos are posted on FB Hot Dog Nation and Erwin Benz pages . I never have been able to post pics here myself.
2012 Tour is scheduled for Sat Sept 22nd , of next yr , an easy date to remember as its Johns birthday (:
Great Job by John anoouncing the stops and the intinerary
Great job by our drivers Dennis and Gary .
Screenbear for handling the announcing duties on second motorcoach , great job as well .
Everyone liked the shirts designed by Coney Island Lou , he has to be contacted to see if he can order more .
Jimmy and his staff at Jimmy Buffs were fantastic once again , refreshments were gratis
James Jr is opening another Jimmy Buffs soon and John will get all the info on here soon
Mannys Texas Weiners served us smoothly and swiftly , Mannys wife handled our group as Manny is in Greece with his ailing Mom and we wish him well he was missed , but the rest of his family odviously share his enthuisiasm for Texas Weiners for sure
Soup or Dogs for a truck were swift too , great shrimp bisque soup . One note is we were told the samples of soups would be gratis and for larger bowls you would purchase , but when we arrived they were charging $1 a sample , not a biggie but not what we were told either ,
Frank and Fries were great as well , owner very accomodating to our group , more so than the Sprint store next store who s manager complained about our busses blocking his biz , well I'm sure they were all heading in to get their phones repaired because mine has not been able to recharge and I have to get it looked at , yes Sprint . Interacting with him and his unprofessional behavior just might tip me into leaving them finally after all these yrs. Great stop though !!
Galloping Hill Inn is a mainstay , great big parking lot , great food and friendly employees and they embrace our group every yr .
Out of This World failed our group , they were not prepared despite telling John otherwise , the Alien guy out front was nice in costume m but after a half hour of orders being taken and no food coming out I kinda wish he would have hopped behind the grill to help
Never done before we actually aborted the stop and left before all had been served , apologies to those that were really looking forward to one their , but had we stayed we would have been there all day for sure , I myslef would never return there .
All in all another great day.
