Coney Detroit with author Joe Grimm

April 23, 2021 | 4:00 - 5:00 PM

Lafayette or American Coney Island...what is your preference?

Bring your coney stories. Tell the gang whether you are for Lafayette or American – or a Flint afficionado. Learn how Detroit and Michigan became the capital of a Coney Nation. “Coney Detroit” co-author Joe Grimm will show you what a real Detroit-style coney dog is, why it found unsurpassed popularity in the Mitten State (shaped that way to better hold a coney), how coney makers improvise, and coney-dining etiquette. Also learn about the Greek family at the root of hundreds of coney islands. The program will include 50 photographs taken for “Coney Detroit,” video and a hot dog IQ test. A good score could earn you a PhD (Professor of Hot Dogs.) This experience will leave your memory full and your stomach feeling empty.
