Good news for Hot Doug's fans, which I'm assuming includes every single person reading this blog: The encased meats emporium announced on Facebook that it will release a book "in Spring 2013." Obviously, this is exciting, because any book about Hot Doug's kind of has to be good. Also, before owner Doug Sohn launched the restaurant, he was a cookbook editor, so he kind of knows what he's doing here.
Here's the other good news: Do you have a great story about a time you had at Hot Doug's? Send it over to the restaurant it might be included in the book. On Facebook, Sohn related that "the success of the restaurant to me is the community--the part of my job I enjoy more than anything else is the interaction with the customers, and I want this book to be a reflection of that. Plus it's less work for me." He's looking for "stories, photos, memories, drawings, poems ... anything that can go in a book."
Honestly, besides stuffing my face with loads of sausages and duck fat fries, I don't really have a good one, but I know other people do. How about the guy who got a Hot Doug's tattoo, securing free food from the restaurant for life? Or what about the couple who got in engaged while waiting in line? If you have a tale worth telling, you can post the memories on Facebook or email [email protected]

Hot Doug's: The Book!
The day has come, my friends. I'm happy to report a book about the restaurant is in the works for a release date in Spring 2013. That said, the success of the restaurant to me is the community--the part of my job I enjoy more than anything else is the interaction with the customers, and I want this book to be a reflection of that. Plus it's less work for me.
So please, send us your stories, photos, memories, drawings, poems ... anything that can go in a book. We'd love to consider including your contribution. Post it on Facebook, or email us at: [email protected]
And if nothing else, please share and Tweet this out so we can reach as many members of the Hot Doug's family as possible.
