I'll be in front of my TV or watching a recorded version later.

Chicagostyledog knows his stuff- I know him personally. Should be a good show.

Glad to see Mark get the exposure. I've spoken with him once or twice and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and his enthusiasm for the hot dog. He clearly knows of what he speaks.

Perhaps the show will air on the left coast. It would be great to see it.

Check your listings boys and girls ...

Mark, the segment was GREAT! It was nice to see my friend Tim, the beekeeper, too. And to see Barry Levinson, founder of the Mustard Museim, was wonderful, too. Your personality really came through. :roll:

Best wishes for continued success. Frankly (:D) you deserve it.

Thanks for the kind words, Mezz. It was truly an honor to be selected as one of the feature stories on the Sunday Morning CBS News annual "Eat, Drink, and be Merry" special.



Bill Geist displays "Big Wally," a Vienna Beef, six inch, half pound, natural casing of pure beef pleasure at his internship. Bill was one of four graduates from Hot Dog University, which he renamed '"The Harvard of Encased Meats."

Mark,

My sincerest apologies. I missed the show due to a schedule mixup. I can really kick myself.

If the show airs again, and you think of it, please let me know.

Mezz-
We visited the Mustard Museum in Mount Horeb and before my wife dragged me out I had spent $75... :rolleyes:

Levinson used to distribute a mustard newsletter, though I haven't gotten one in a while. He was a young lawyer of some prominence, and his story of how he broke the news to his mother - a proper Jewish mom who was very proud of her son, the lawyer - that he was forsaking the law to open a mustard museum was absolutely hilarious.

Well worth a visit if you're anywhere near the Madison area.
