The ballpark hotdog just got an upgrade.
Doug Sohn — the Chicago sausage king who closed his beloved Avondale restaurant last year — is bringing his “Hot Doug’s” sausages to Wrigley Field.
How about abacon cheeseburger sausage with cola BBQ sauce and sharp cheddar cheese, named the“Dave Kingman?”
Or perhaps you’d prefer a“Rick Reuschel,” described as an “atomic pork sausage with chipotle mustard and pepper jack cheese.”
Or, for fans of a more traditional dog, the“Carmen Fanzone” — a spicy Vienna Polish sausage served with spicy brown mustard and caramelized onions.
Sohn, who closed his restaurant in October last year, said he named the encased meats after his favorite former Cubs.
They will be served at Platform 14, a new outdoor concession area in the Budweiser Bleachers located behind the historic center field scoreboard.
“The outpouring of love and support from Chicago for Hot Doug’s was incredible, and it became clear our fans were still craving the sausages that made our restaurant famous,” Sohn said in a news release.
“The opportunity to partner with the Cubs and serve our product at historic Wrigley Field was too tempting to pass up, and we’re thrilled that Chicagoans now have a chance to enjoy Hot Doug’s once again.”
