Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

WV HotDog Festival in Huntington, WV

July 26th, was the 3rd annual WV HotDog Festival in Huntington, WV. The HotDog fest featured live music, vendors and a car show! Through a partnership with Cabell-Huntington Hospital, all proceeds from the WV Hot Dog Festival benefit the childrens' cancer unit at the Edwards' Comprehensive Cancer Center. We wondered upon the HotDog fest accidentally this year, but will mark our calanders for last Saturday in July next year!

Below are some photos from the car show:

Great car from Russell Ky
but it isn't very old Hilly
not your usual. I'm betting the driver had Blenko in the windshield.

For the life of me, I can't imagine a guy asking you
out for a hotdog!
Maybe for lobster dinner or a wine tasting event but hotdog festival?
Oh Hilary you are with the wrong crowd.
