Fostering a new sense of community 


The Helpful Hot Dog brings folks together for a common purpose: a love of their community, a desire to help, a the joy of a darn good hot dog. 


The team behind The Mercury, The Pinewood and Proof Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrups are proud to bring you the reinstallation of The Helpful Hot Dog, a chef-driven pop-up supporting Atlanta area non-profits. The Helpful Hot Dog program brings BeltLine goers a weekly series of rotating chefs offering their own unique rendition on a classic hot dog.

The initiative will kick off the season on Saturday, March 4th at Ponce City Market’s The Shed from 12:00-3:00 p.m. All proceeds from the 2016 program supported Atlanta-area nonprofits such as Wholesome Wave Georgia, Lost ‘N Found Youth, Camp Twin Lakes, American Friend Service Committee, the Isaiah House, Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelter and many more.
