This weekend kicks off one of the most historical sporting events in Texas with the return of the Ft. Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Since 1896, Ft. Worth has hosted the legendary event that has evolved into 3 weeks of Live Music, Exhibitions and many Charitable and Multicultural Activities for people of all ages. For the first year, The Wiener Man Food Truck is setting up adjacent to Rodeo grounds to serve the thousands of daily visitors. The Wiener Man sells much more than the classic hot dog, which owner Bryce Tomberlin tells me that almost nobody orders. Gourmet dogs include the "Slaw Dog," an 1/8 lb. All-Beef dog topped with Vinegar based Slaw and a strip of griddled Bacon with signature Spicy Mayo and the Vegetarian "Porta Dog;" Portabella strips, sauteed Spinach, fresh made Pico and Spicy Mayo. Daily service will be at the corner of University and Lancaster at the Goodwill Donation Center beginning at 4pm on weekdays and 11am on weekends. As a nod to Goodwill for being a great host, The Wiener Man is implementing a "Match Tips Program" where every dollar put in the tip jar means one dollar donated to Goodwill...and it's all in the good name of Wiener Fans!
