More Chicago Condiment Action

It wouldn't be a condiment road trip to Chicago without a Chicago dog, which is all about the toppings.  According to my brain (and backed up by Wikipedia), Chicago dogs include:

  • yellow mustard
  • dill pickle spear
  • tomato wedges
  • sport peppers
  • celery salt

They also espoused some contemplative condiment wisdom on their placemats:
