WHAT: It’s the dog days of summer and things are about to heat up even more at The Kirkland Tap & Trotter when Myers + Chang’s Executive Chef Karen Akunowicz takes over the kitchen on Monday, August 3 for the next Guest Chef Top Dog Series. Nominated in 2015 for the James Beard Award’s “Best Chef Northeast,” Chef Akunowicz will be the next “Top Dog” to join Chef Tony Maws and unveil her frankfurter. Will the dog have Asian influences or will Chef go rogue? Dog-lovers can follow social media (@tapandtrotter and @myersandchang) in the days leading up to August 3 to find out!

COST: $16/hot dog

50% of the Guest Dog proceeds will be donated to Share Our Strength, a national charity working to end childhood hunger in the U.S.
