There are burger battles and croqueta critiques. But when does the wiener get its due?

How about Saturday: Magic City Casino and the food blogger Burger Beast are hosting Weiner Bash, with several Miami restaurants trying their hand at making the best hot dogs and sausages, while classic rock ‘n’ roll from bands such as the Guess Who fill the air.

Pincho Factory, Shake Shack and Sweet Dogs are among at least 15 restaurants that will participate. The Guess Who will be joined by War and Foghat. All-inclusive tickets begin at $60.
