A sad day for Chicago and an even sadder day for tubed-meat-enthusiasts.
Hot Doug’s Sausage Superstore, a pioneer in tubed-meat innovation, is closing it’s doors for good on October 3rd, 2014. Doug Sohn, the genius behind the hot doggery claims he is closing up shop because “it is time to do something else.”
That is a pretty cool sentiment. He is not closing up because of money or a dispute with a landlord, rather because he’s accomplished what he set out to do and now wants to take on a new challenge. Kudos, sausage king, kudos.
Hot Doug’s ascendency to the top of Mount Sausage culminated in a number of TV appearances, including on the Chicago episode of No Reservations.
If you’d like to get your hands on a Foie Gras Dog or their divine Duck Fat Fries, you have less than 5 months to do so.
