I think it was Fuzzy Lumpkins and the meat gun and not Doug Sohn who was responsible for selling hot dogs to all the innocents in Chicago. Too bad it was Doug Sohn who got the $250 fine. The “NYT” saves us all from foie gras.
The city imposed a fine of $250 Thursday on Doug Sohn, the proprietor of Hot Doug’s, a restaurant on the city’s northwest side that describes itself as a Sausage Superstore and Encased Meat Emporium. Menu items cost under $10
So crime and danger is being haulted for a $10 foie gras hotdog. I already feel safer. Any bets on when the speakeasies open? Imagine all that meat.
The City Council, citing concerns over the force-feeding process, overwhelmingly approved the ban in April 2006, making Chicago the first city in the country to outlaw the sale of foie gras. The ban infuriated Mayor Richard M. Daley, who opposed the measure, as well as many restaurateurs, some of whom openly defied the ban when it took effect last August by serving foie gras specials.
