Yesterday I embarked on my 2nd annual journey to get a foot-long hot dog for lunch at the Greater Columbus Fair.

This activity is perhaps the most glaring reminder that we live in a town where people love to eat. We stood in line for about 30 minutes for our foot-longs, which you can order with "The Works" -- also known as chili, onions and pickles. Mmmm.

The best bet is the $7 combo, which comes with fries and a drink.

It's pretty unbelievable that I just donated an entire post to hot dogs, but they really are soooo good. My dining partner described the experience as refreshing.

If nothing else, you should go for the sole purpose of shamefully telling your friends you devoted an hour of your life to fair food.

The lunch stand is open 11 a.m.-2 p.m. through Friday.
