GOOD DOG : Chattanooga, TN

GOOD DOG

I love Chattanooga! And this restaurant has to be at least one reason why. Read what GOOD DOG has to say about their own awesome place:

GOOD DOG is a quick-service restaurant that serves great food in the form of all-beef, natural casing hot dogs, the very best veggie dogs, homemade chili, hand-cut twice-fried fries, fresh salads with hand-crafted dressings and freshly baked cupcakes.  We are committed to making fresh, fast food accessible to all while keeping it affordable, fun and socially responsible.

GOOD DOG believes in GOOD things, GOOD food, GOOD folks, GOOD times and a GOOD earth.  Our restaurant was built using re-claimed and re-purposed materials.  We strive in daily operation to minimize waste, promote recycling and create the smallest environmental footprint possible.  Our french fry oil is collected and used as bio-diesel fuel.  We believe that one fry at a time, we can help to make a difference.

AWESOME, right? We were off in the North Shore District in Chattanooga (checking out 1 of the 6 gear shops we looked at during our awesome road trip) and I pass by a door way that looks something like this…

ummm… yes please.

So, I see a Cupcake with a halo and then a Hot Dog with a halo and I’m as good as done. This is where we were meant to be. Check out the menu.

I got the BBQ Dog and my boyfriend got the Chicago dog. They were EPIC. So epic that I forgot to take pics of them (sad day, I know). I was just way too excited.  But check out my other pics.

Crown Molding and Door Frames

Their counter tops are accented with old crown molding and old door frames. I love this.

Yes Ma’am – GOOD CUPCAKE

I LOVE CAKE.

These guys rock! Check out the main website here and check out their blog here and make sure you show your support and go there.

The Uniform Project

So I was reading up on current events i.e. really just checking on cnn.com to see if anything caught my eye — and something did!

So basically there’s this really cool girl — name: Sheena Matheiken — and she had this really cool idea.

Idea: wear one dress for all 365 days of the year.

She reinvented the TRUE luxury of owning a LBD (little black dress). While this may seem to be a fun project to cut down on shopping costs and reinforce the wonderful idea of renewable clothing; she also did this project in conjunction with a fund raiser to raise money for The Akanksha Foundation. The Akanksha Foundation is a non-profit  located in Mumbai, India. The foundation recognized that the Indian government spends on average $360 on every ONE child that attends school. So Sheena made her project public throughout the course of a year and was able to raise $94,698.00 which means that she was able to send 263 slum children to school for 1 year!

I can honestly not say it better than Sheena herself. Watch her video. She’s cool. I think we should be friends. I think I should have that dress.

So, if you want to know more about this project, you can check out the cnn.com interview (the site where I found her), check out her facebook fan page, or the logical place to go The Uniform Project website.

Peace and Love Throughout the World
