Did you miss the Coney Island Mermaid Parade? The annual event celebrates the beginning of the summer season but even if you weren’t able to attend, the New York humidity already serves as a giveaway that summer is here! The Mermaid Parade began back in the early 1980s and besides signaling the arrival of summer, it also pays homage to the Coney Island Mardi Gras parades which were extremely popular during the early 20th century.
To coincide with last week’s Mermaid Parade, the travel magazine Time Out New York took some time out to cover “The best bars and restaurants in Coney Island” and sure enough, Feltman’s hot dogs managed to make the top ten! The article singles out the “the snappy tubers” packed with lots of tasty ingredients like sauerkraut, grated Parmesan, and even some vodka sauce. You can pick up Time Out New York magazine for free at your local subway station, your favorite bar, at the gym, or you can read it online.
This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island Hot Dogs, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the first hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the hot dog. Feltman’s hot dogs are free of nitrates and artificial ingredients, using all natural beef to create an experience that explodes with incredible, original flavor. For more information, please visit one of the locations in Brooklyn or Feltman’s Kitchen on St. Marks Place in the East Village to try some of the best hot dogs in the country.
