When interviewing people, my students found a common theme. Many memories revolved around the fast food of the time…..hot dogs. We were lucky enough to have Mr. Hinton come to the Celebration of Stories and serve his father's famous chili hotdogs. The line was sometimes 15 people long. There was a buzz and excitement about Mutt's famous chili hotdogs. In the line were students who spent a year hearing about these hotdogs along with people who ate these hotdogs 50 years ago in their youth. It really was a beautiful moment.
