Here is some shocking and sad news this spring morning. Chicago's iconic gourmet hot dog spot, Hot Doug's is closing up in October. Owner and icon Doug Sohn made the "permanent vacation" announcement on the Hot Doug's website this morning below a message about a Memorial Day vacation.
Sohn, who immortalized the shop in a book last year, tells DNAinfo and RedEye that it's just "time to do something else." Sohn hasn't responded to phone calls yet to talk about the news so stay tuned.
