And some miscellaneous stuff--
The prize for Best Transylvanian was going to be a hand-painted mini ceramic gnome based on the English Garden gnomes in
the ballroom during Time Warp, but no one entered, so I get to keep it. Ha!
And in case you were wondering, the proper toppings for a Chicago-style hot dog are:
-Hot peppers (also called sport peppers)
This should be on a kosher 100% Vienna beef hot dog and a poppy seed bun, and should never, ever, EVER contain ketchup.
