A touch of Coney Island at July 4 picnic

Those who go to the American Colony Committee Independence Day bash better be hungry.

The committee reports that 3,500 Nathan’s Famous hot dogs will be available. And they will be grilled, not drowned in hot water, picnic organizers promise

There are plenty of stories behind the Nathan’s hot dog that originated in Coney Island at the turn of the 20th century. They are beef with special ingredients.

These New York-style dogs are just one of the incentives to visit the picnic July 4 at the Cervercería Costa Rica grounds west of San José from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Admission is 5,000 colons and the beer and hot dogs are free.

The picnic is primarily for expat youngsters who might not have experienced a U.S. Independence Day. There’s a pretty good chance that they never have experienced a Nathan’s dog because the company is relatively new to Costa Rican food courts.

The climax is the raising of the U.S. Flag by members of the U.S. Marine security detachment at the U.S. Embassy.

This is the 55th annual picnic for U.S. expats and their families. More information is HERE!
