My Laguna friends, Jim the dentist, Alan the CPA, and I are crazy about hot dogs. So are my neighbors, Toni the mayor, Bara the videographer, Todd the contractor, Audrey the realtor and Dan the webmeister. Each of us has our favorite dog and location. We even have a rating system, which includes judging the pop in the dog (or as some say, snap), the bun, condiments served, a stand's overall ambience and more. To hear us deliberating, you'd think we were tasting fine wine. More than once, someone has rejected a dog after the first bite.

Glori Fickling Although festival season winds down this weekend, there is still time to enjoy the fun, food and enticements our summer season perennially brings. Among the newer attractions this year was the arrival of Gina's Alfresco at the Festival of Arts. This tempting attraction is the latest creation of the long-successful Costa family, which boasts five popular Italian restaurants, two of which are right here in town. Selected by festival aficionados from among dozens of entries, the refreshing outdoor cafe was designed to bring family-style fare at affordable prices.

The crowd noise is gone. Birds coo and chirp in the tall trees. A gentle breeze rustles their leaves. There is a faint whoosh coming from the glassblowing furnace. The Sunday morning sounds on the Sawdust Art Festival grounds are only soft ones. An early morning walk along the shore with stand-up paddleboarders galore - the most I've seen all summer - started this wonderful day. Hard to believe it was a work day for me. The festival season may be over, but managing the year-round Sawdust Studio Art Classes goes on. Work?

A $5 million renovation at Heisler Park in Laguna Beach is nearing completion.

A free hot dog lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., while supplies last. The renovation, which started after Labor Day, focused on areas around Rockpile and Picnic Beaches, where restrooms have been replaced, pathways reconfigured, and overlook areas added for ocean viewing, according to Assistant City Manager John Pietig.

Hot dog! Heisler Park reopened Tuesday A well-attended ribbon cutting and public picnic celebrated the completion of a renovation project that had closed portions of the park since Labor Day. “We served more than 1,000 hot dogs,” Assistant City Manager John Pietig told the City Council Tuesday night. The crowd exceeded Pietig’s expectations, but was warmly welcomed to the rededication, which he had orchestrated. It was the culmination of years of work that began with a 50-year master plan for the preservation and renovation of the park.

Four years ago, six Democrats were vying for their party's presidential nomination. Back then, the pundits griped there was very little light between the candidates. Not surprisingly, that's virtually the same thing I have been hearing since the Republicans debated in New Hampshire on June 13. With the long Fourth of July weekend upon us, I have a suggestion for all the candidates hoping to challenge President Obama next year: Make sure you are seen eating hot dogs — the great American icon of food — as often as possible.
