Although I do realize that you can get Nathan’s Hot Dogs virtually anywhere these days, it was important to me, as a hot dog connoisseur, to eat an original as part of my bucket list!
After two fabulous nights in NYC, it was time to get a little gritty and head out to Coney Island for this bucket list experience.
Upon arrival, I knew I was not on the Upper East Side anymore!
The first stop was obviously Nathan’s.
And of course I knew my order from the minute I stepped on to the Island. One original hot dog, plain.
I felt that to get the true Nathan’s original experience, I had to enjoy the delicacy in its purest form, meat on a bun!
Just a couple of cuties ready to take down Nathan’s original!
The time had come to take my first bite and savour the dog in all its glory!
Juicy and delicious it was!
After chowing down on my original, we decided to take advantage of being away from the city and at the beach!
A little feet-in-the-water stroll was in order!
We then met up with my girl Katie from high school on the boardwalk for a couple New York brews at this cool little spot, Paul’s Daughter.
So fun to experience a different part of New York that most New Yorker’s themselves never even experience, and of course any day involving an original hot dog eating experience is a good day in my book!
