Thank you Stacy for showing us what a Coney Dog looks like!

The team at Stahls’ in St. Clair Shores celebrated the Detroit Tigers and took a lunch break from our busy “spring season” with our annual Coney Island Day, catered by National Coney Island. (We’ve been doing this at LEAST 20 years!) This baseball-themed event is a fun and honored tradition for the staff here, with many dressing up in their favorite jerseys. Table favors include Cracker Jacks and shelled peanuts; balloons and table cloths are in the Tigers’ team colors. And we can’t forget the star attraction–Coney Island hot dogs. If you’re not from the Detroit area, you might not know exactly what a “Coney” is. For the uninitiated, it’s a delicious grilled hot dog topped with chili sauce, onions and yellow mustard. If you grew up in Michigan, you’ll know that everyone has their favorite “go-to” Coney Island place. We also served spinach pies, potato salad and pasta salad. No one left hungry, that’s for sure. There were two sessions, so that our busy production workers on the second shift were also able to participate. Coney Island Day at Stahls–it’s another way we show our appreciation for all the hard work and dedication of our team members. Thank you to everyone for coming (many of our out of town team members from the marketing summit meeting were able to stop by) and to all of you that made it happen. Already looking forward to next year.

Thanks to Joe who dressed up as the "hot dog guy" as well as Paul who is somewhere under that tiger costume.  I won't be posting it but you should have seen their "dance-off." Joe won hands down.

My son Dan Stahl with "Paws" and Joe. Dan organized a dance-off between the hot dog and the tiger. The hot dog won. Great entertainment and good fun.

Mark Schwarb and Ken Chadwick, GSSA Sales Reps, were in town for the marketing meeting and they remembered to bring their spirit wear. Yes, even fans of other MLB teams were welcome.

See that big pot of chili? It's a key ingredient for every original Coney Island dog.
