Kings Hot Dogs draws a crowd
July 27, 2014/Charlotte Evans
Quite a crowd gathered, some with lawn chairs in hand, at Kings Hot Dogs in the Village Square Shopping Center on Saturday for “The Not Quite Done Remodel/Expansion Party” to take advantage of $1 hot dogs and to enjoy live entertainment including music and wrestling.
Music provided by BerkStar, a Winston-Salem-based band filled the air with sounds of R&B and rock. Band mates Tony Berkstar (vocals and guitar), Kenny Keesee (bass), Dana Alexander (drums) and Gerald Tiffin (keyboards) performed throughout the event. Jim Lindsay served as the day’s sound man. The band performs around the area.
Six professional wrestlers of AIWF Mid Atlantic Wrestling fought in a few matches in the wrestling ring constructed in the parking lot. Event-goers witnessed the matches of Jacob Ryan, Cory Edsel, Rob Evil, Sgt. Stryker, The Natural Born Playa and Ty Tyson during the afternoon event. AIWF’s next event, an all-cage match show will be held Aug. 26 at the Mt. Airy Armory.
An inflatable bouncy slide and a dunking booth entertained the younger attendees. Younger children took turns bouncing up the stairs to slide down, while the older ones tried to dunk the victim in the dunking booth.
Jared Pike of the Jared & Katie in the Morning Show on 107.5 KZL was on location offering attendees an opportunity to spin the prize wheel for WKZL promotional goodies. Many 1075KZL stickers were handed out as were t-shirts and other items.
Kings Hot Dogs’ Jeff Harris ventured out into the crowd and into the wrestling ring to fire off a few rounds of his t-shirt cannon into the crowd. T-shirts streaked above the crowd’s heads causing hands to fly into the air attempting to catch one of the coveted tees.
Kings Hot Dogs, a family-owned restaurant has been serving customers for over 20 years. The grand prize of the door prizes was for free hot dogs for a year for one lucky contest entrant. Two hot dogs every day through July 25, 2015 will be awarded to the winner.
