N = Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs   "In 1916, Nathan Handwerker started his nickel hot dog stand on Coney Island, with a $300 loan and his wife’s secret recipe. At the time, he had no idea how famous those hot dogs would be. He had no idea that millions around the globe would tune in to see how many of those hot dogs could be consumed in 10 minutes, or that they would be available to consumers around the world in retail and restaurants.  Fast forward to 2020, 104 years later, and the start of a new decade and Nathan’s Famous is embarking on a new path. One that pays homage to its New York roots, and famous food, but changes everything you know about the brand.

My grandparents lived in Coney Island right on the beach. We spent a lot of time there and Nathan's was part of it.

Did you ever watch the hot dog eating contest?

No, but if it were my choice, I would have! I was very young so I didn't make the decisions. 🙂 I have lovely memories, though. Sundays on the beach; watching my grandfather play pinochle in the park on those old stone chess tables; Tuesday night fireworks; eating delicious food on the boardwalk. Childhood was so carefree.

I bet we probably passed by each other too.  The boardwalk was so exciting, and my grandad took me with him everywhere.
