This past Saturday my friend and I faced a dining dilemma: West was questionable, Shop Rite was lacking, and we didn’t want to spend big bucks. That’s when the grilling gods sent us a solution in the form of Mike’s Hot Dogs. Located on Erie Boulevard at the bottom of campus, Mike’s Hot Dogs is a classic hot dog joint that has been serving Schenectady delicious food for over 50 years. Although its interior hasn’t changed in 50 years, neither has its high-quality service nor its unbeatable prices, all equating to a wonderfully vintage dining experience perfect for the busy and cheap college student. Whether you want your dog with simple ketchup and mustard or you want the works, at Mike’s Hot Dogs you won’t be barking up the wrong tree.
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
