Belltown’s Del Rey Now Serving Authentic Detroit Style Coney Dogs!

If you are a Seattlite, I am sure you know at least one Michigan transplant. It is no secret that the State of Michigan, and Detroit in particular, has been one of the hardest hit by our recent economic crisis. Michiganders are moving out of the state in droves to find better employment opportunities and many find their way to the Seattle area.

I am one of these many Detroiters now located in Seattle and while I love it here so much, every now and then I need a reminder of home. I get so excited when the Tigers or Lions play here (miss those Pistons coming here!!) and love catching sports games, Detroit bands, amongst other Michigan things with my fellow Michigan transplants.

Well, I can add two more taste of home to my list… Coney Dogs & Vernors cocktails!

Now if you have yet to try a Detroit Coney (also, sometimes referred to as a Michigan Coney) you are in for a treat. You start with a Koegel Hot Dog, top it with Detroit style chili (bean free), diced white onions and top it off with yellow mustard. Always wash it down with a Vernors Ginger Ale.

So, while Leo’s or Angelo’s have not decided to franchise into Seattle (for now), one local Belltown establishment has flown in the authentic ingredients, straight from Detroit, for your tasting pleasure. You can get this tasty treat every Monday night Del Rey for just $3. In addition, Del Rey will be serving $4 Vernors cocktails (Vernors & Vanila Stoli is my favorite drink ever) and will be playing the best jams from Detroit artists such as The White Stripes, Madonna, Motown, Bob Seger and everything in-between.

Del Rey is located at 2332 1st Avenue at Battery. Detroit Rock City Monday is every Monday from 4pm to Midnight.  Del Rey offers Belltown residents a 10% discount on regular priced items.

omg just got surprised with a Detroit coney from @delreyseattle on Twitpic

    Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize an unsuspecting dog, walker, or both. No dog lover could possibly observe a more horrifying scene than witnessing his beloved pet instantaneously maimed or tragically electrocuted. When you exercise your pooch, please exercise greater prudence. Common outdoor electrical and metal fixtures may shock or even kill your vulnerable dog. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. But you can, indeed, self-protect.

    Just start to adopt this simple strategy — EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND AVOID A SHOCK. Take a few seconds and make your trajectory toward generally safer, free standing, non-conductive surfaces, ie., plastic, wood, cardboard. Intuit your dog’s cues and if it’s resistant, change directions. Work site perimeters may be live so try to elude them. If necessary, switch sides of the street or your hands when leading to skirt hazards. If you traverse the same route, you may memorize locations of potential dangers. Carry your pooch when in doubt. Consider indoor restroom products like PottyPark when external conditions are chancy or RopeNGo’s hardware-free leash and harness. And don’t rely on dog booties as a palliative as they will actually put your pet at even greater risk since the dog can’t tell you they’re leaking! To learn to more, please see StreetZaps. A safer walk is yours year round if you are willing to open to your eyes and mind to it
