The 3-year-old and I are sort of becoming regulars every couple of weeks now at Zackies hot dog establishment down in Germantown at 5th Av. & Madison St. Tonight was an exceptionally fine night to sit on their street-side patio and down a Chicago-style (brightest green relish I've ever seen) and my own favorite, a dog with their fresh cole slaw and spicy mustard. People-watching across the street at Germantown Cafe is almost as good as the celery salt. It's becoming a daddy-daughter ritual of sorts with the young one requesting Zackies consistently now when she gets out of school (she likes her dog with just catsup and a side of slaw). When mom is otherwise detained, how can I resist that kind of pressure?
