So there has been some discussion lately on making the Neba the official food of the Capital Region. See Mr. Barnes' post on Table Hopping here regarding this. There has even been a Facebook page made in support of the Neba (self indulgent shout out to them because they reference this blog). On the Table Hopping post there seems to be some disagreement with many locals voting for the Capital Region mini hot dog ala Charlie's or Gus's as the best suited item to represent our glorious area of the Empire State (I hate to say it but this option is towards where my heart truly pulls). In the past I have written about both the Neba (see here for Return of the NEBA!).
As well as the Capital Region Hot Dog Micro Region.
Let us all settle this right now. I have instituted a poll in the upper right hand corner of the blog. I am casting the first vote for hot dogs. Opinions are welcomed
