Fire up the grill! Today is National Hot Dog Day. National Hot Dog Day is declared each year by The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council and is celebrated on the day the council hosts the annual hot dog luncheon on Capitol Hill.
Some chains will be offering special deals on hot dogs today, and some throughout the month, seeing as July is national hot dog month.
The council estimates baseball fans will consume nearly 19 million hot dogs and more than four million sausages during the 2017 major league baseball season.
