The last time I was in Bridgeport was sad. My wife and I were showing our grandson around her hometown. The bridge to Pleasure Beach where her family cottage was located was gone -- burned, it think -- and Beechmont Dairy looked like Hell. Her grammar school, Nathan Hale, was gone, replaced by some sort of housing, and her family's house on West Taft Avenue had a car up on blocks in the front yard.
 
My old neighborhood in New Haven, Westville, hasn't changed much, but the city sure has, and places I used to hang out are now battlegrounds for gangs.
 
It's sad.

My lead cook threw the packaging away, so at this point I don't know.

Folks the thread is getting way off topic. Please return to a rational discussion of the Costco Weinies, or we'll have to shut this one down.
We just returned from a Saturday visit to Costco. Even with a fistful of coupons for all sorts of bargains, the tab was $246.00. No hot dogs in the boxes for us as we still have 3 lbs of their hot links. We did get a Polish dog at the snack bar...and a whole pizza to take home. Our store is using the Kirkland All beef Dogs, BTW. They are OK, but we like the Polish better.. However the frozen Shrimp Scampi that was a coupon special a couple of months ago has become a staple in our dinner menu. Pretty strong Garlic flavor that does work well with noodles  or some Pasta, and some Alfredo Sauce and Parm. Cheese.
 
Now, Please mind your manners.

Mr. Mayor, you keep talking about the Polish at Costco, aren't they the Hebrew National 1/4 lb. dogs? I've never seen a Polish at a Costco.

The Louisville store has "hot dogs" that are advertised on the placards as Kirkland All-Beef. They also advertise in the store for 'Polish Dogs' , no further description, on the menu card.  These are not retail in the store (as far as I can find) but only served at the snack bar for the $1.50 " Dog & Drink Special"

I would hate to depend on Costco for  consistency of a set menu. They are very limited in all areas. My wife went there yesterday to pick up a few things for our vending operation, they were out of a few popular brands of Candy bars and don't even carry most brands. I can't see how anyone, other than a small Mom and Pop operation or hot dog cart could even deal with them......PNWC

I bought a 600lb Steer and a 500 lb Heifer,,,,,,,,,The steer is long and will throw a nice long Prime rib, I will process him at about 1400lbs. The Heifer will run smaller, I hope to get her up to about 1150.......I process them USDA, so I can use the meat in my Cafe, I should get about 800lbs of hamburger.............

Hi Ann, I will get about 56 cases of 4-1 patty's, 200 lb of bulk used for Meatloaf and all other ground beef needs, Top and bottom round that we carve for Roast beef dinners, hot beef sands and French dips, any other cuts that could be used for Tips, stroganoff, Oriental beef stir fry's, Fajitas, carne Asada and so on. I was telling Chewingthefat today that we will have 16 to 20 piglets next month, and I'm thinking about raising 6 to 8 of those for the cafe.

They still sell Hebrew National...and Nathans...and(ugh) Ball Park...and in the summer, we're lucky enough to get Large Thumanns!!! Umbrellas now say Kirkland hot dogs...so I guess it's permanent.

I love Hebrew National from Costco, I bought a package of the Kirkland, had two split and grilled on my flat top, I thought they were suprisingly good, actually right up there with the H N.

Michael, I don't know if you remember, or even were involved in private clubs/ bars around the Bridgeport area. On the Eastside of Bpt every Nationality had their own private club, The Polish Club, Ukrainian club, and so on. During the summer they would have club picnics, one of the more popular items was having grilled Liver, bacon and onion sandwiches on a good rye bread. The liver was sliced real thin and cooked in the bacon fat, they then added the bacon and grilled onions to build the sandwich, this was a melt in your mouth sandwich. There was nothing like eating those sandwiches, drinking beer and shooting craps all day long...............

The absolute finest liver and onions I've ever had was at -- of all places -- a Holiday Inn restaurant in either Grand Haven or South Haven, Michigan -- I can never get them straight. It seems that Holiday Inn was owned by a restauranteur from Detroit who wouldn't allow less than the best.
 
But, the next finest I've ever had is served at the two Cap City Fine Diners in Columbus and Gahanna. They use Provimi veal liver, and their sauce (rather than gravy) is beyond superb. The carmelized onions are exquisite, as are the mashed potatoes. In fact, the liver, onions, sauce and potatoes are so deliciously ambrosial that the currently correct "crisp" broccoli and carrots served with the liver can be excused, or, as I prefer, ignored.
