The New York Times published an article today entitled “In Praise of the All-American Mexican Hot Dog.”
The article not only describes the wonder that is the Sonoran Hot Dog, but visits Dove&Snake restaurant of choice, El Güero Canelo, right here in Tucson.
Here’s our favorite snippet from the article:
“In Tucson, bacon-wrapped, Mexican-dressed hot dogs are not ascendant. They’re dominant.”
Read the article to get a little history lesson on the origin(s) of the hot dog in its south-of-the-border incarnation, as well as to enjoy the national spotlight shining on a local favorite.

Last week, Derek Griffith let us post a preview of his film D*I*Y. Derek requested that we make it a limited time only kind of deal, so we’re going to take that one down.
In its stead, we’ll give you a first look at one more scene from D*I*Y. This one will also be up for a limited time. Check it out this week. We’ll keep up with Derek about the progress of D*I*Y as he moves through the last shots and finalizes post-production.
The second batch of Reflective Collective + Dove&Snake tees is ready. They are just like the first batch, only black instead of red. If you paid already, your shirt is on its way (see: Keith, Jenn). If you ordered, $15 is all that stands between you and your shirt.
If you didn’t order, but now you’re thinking that you should have, that you missed the boat on this one, go ahead and express your regret at this misstep and hope to make amends to us at email@example.com. We’ll either see about a third order or keep you in mind for the second shirt design in the future.
