Red Hots, White and Blue
The middle of the week holiday timing couldn’t be worse. Record highs are singeing the QC, and you weren't able to talk your boss into that "meeting" in Amelia Island. Do your celebrating at today's festivities, when two locals with New York roots debut JJ’s Red Hots, a fresh concept that features gourmet hot dogs and sausages, plus local beers. Relish in JJ’s delectables like the Char Heel, a classic Carolina dog topped with chili, onions, slaw and mustard, and take in clever nods to the building's history as the former Drum restaurant. The Nation Ford High School Drum Line performs at 2 p.m. This may not go down as the greatest Independence Day ever, but it definitely won’t be the wurst.
