After just opening last week for a new year (my 6th year in business), I am closed again because of this corona virus b.s. I'm hoping that the bar district opens again soon. When it does, I'll be slinging dogs for you again!

Just wanted to let you know that I won't be opening tonight. The winds are just too strong out of the WSW combined with the rest of the weather.

Got the cart loaded and was about to load the Jeep when I had to make the "no go" call.

Plan to be out there tomorrow night.



Due to heavy winds, the possibility of straight-line winds, Howard's Hot Dogs will not be open tonight, Wednesday, October 3rd. See you again on Friday evening!

Throwback to the 1960s at Duly's Place Coney Island, 5458 W. Vernor Hwy. at Junction Street in Southwest Detroit.

It was opened there in 1921 by Albanian immigrant Duly Seit and bought from his family in 2000 by Gjoka ("Joe") Gojcaj, an employee for more than 25 years. He runs the popular 24-hour diner with his sister and two children.


Thanks for a fantastic 2017! Hope to see you again when I open for 2018 on St. Patrick's Day weekend.


See you Christmas & New Year's Weekends!


Thanks for a fantastic 2016! Time to hibernate a bit, clean and repair some equipment before re-opening for another year. See you around St. Patrick's Day...maybe sooner!
