Time for another made-up food holiday.
Wednesday is National Hot Dog Day, which means restaurants across the country have free or discounted dogs.
The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council estimates Americans will eat 7 billion hot dogs between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.
Wednesday also is National Daiquiri Day and July is National Hot Dog Month, National Ice Cream Month, National Grilling Month, National Horseradish Month, National Baked Bean Month, etc.
Here are some deals that really, um, cut the mustard:
• Hwy 55 Burgers: Hot dogs are 99 cents each at participating Hwy 55 restaurants who are members of the My Hwy 55 Rewards program and all guests who download the app. This dine-in offer is limited to two per guest. You also get a free milkshake for downloading the app. Find locations here.
• Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers: At participating locations, the giveaway is lasting a week. With this coupon, which you can print or show on your smartphone, get one free hot dog or roller grill menu item of your choice July 19 through 26 at participating locations.
