Camberville Hot Dog Crawl

Roxys Grilled Cheese

Hot dog lovers, here’s something to look forward to: the fourth annual Camberville Hot Dog Crawl is making a comeback for a pre-Christmas, Covid-era-appropriate installment from Wednesday, December 16th through Sunday, December 20th.

The simplified and socially-distant version will feature a trio of familiar destinations from previous years including Roxy’s Grilled Cheese (485 Cambridge St. in Allston ‘cause their Mass Ave outpost is closed for the moment), Buenas at Bow Market (1 Bow Market Way in Somerville) and Trina’s Starlite Lounge (3 Beacon St. in Inman Square) – you can eat an extra dog in honor of the Automatic, another former participant, which closed earlier this year. Just grab a dog at each of the locations between the 16th and 20th, snap pics and post ‘em on Insta tagging @cambervillehotdogcrawl with the hashtag #CambervilleHotDogCrawl. Once you’ve eaten all three dogs, DM the crawl peeps your posts/stories for the chance to win stuff.

All locations will be offering takeout and/or delivery only and crawlers are asked to order, whenever possible, from each establishments directly through their respective websites (no pesky third-party app fees!) and to tip generously. You can pre-order Ts and hoodies this year, too so you can display your hot dog prowess proudly. Proceeds from sales will go right back to the restaurants in the form of gift cards, which will be used as prizes so it’s a win/win.

Get all the details and additional info (including possible pinch-hitting hot dog destinations if any of the OG trio have to sit this one out) on Facebook or Insta, pre-order your merch online here and get ready for a week full of hot dogs from some of your favorite local spots.
