If you’re looking for the Exchange Club of Columbus’ hot dog sale, you won’t find it at South Commons. The sale is now held at the Shrine Club, 3202 Edgewood Road. It runs 11 a.m.-2 p.m. through Saturday this week.
For a $7 ticket, you get a foot-long hot dog with chili, chips and a drink. Call 706-289-5667 and your order will be delivered to your car. Proceeds from the event help many community service projects.
