    It's starting today! 8 Coney places in one day seems like a bit much though.

      Kind'a disappointed that they are limiting their search to Washtenaw county ... to find Michigan's
      best coney dog. I'm guessing that they find Washtenaw's best ...

        wait, what? They're going to Lansing (Ingham County), Jackson (Jackson County), Ann Arbor and Ypsi (Washtenaw County) and Detroit (Wayne County) just TODAY. They hit the west side of the state soon.

      A little disappointed in their choices, as I'm sure most are. Grand Rapids also sports:
      The Coney Dog (Fulton)(a local couple from Detroit (they have Vernor's in the fountain!)
      JB's on Wealthy (a newish place, but the buns are AMAZING and they're super friendly)
      Yesterdog (also Wealthy) (no idea if this counts as a coney place and I'm only posting this on heresay - it's on the list of places to visit, but we never make it past JB's!
