a really good hot dog in Europe?

My SO's older son will be 17 in the fall. I want to give him something that will provide a nominal income for him as he won't be able to work due to the requirements of his college. Options I am considering are: a greeting card business with some other members of his family; helping to run a summer camp; performing songs about stuff on Spotify; and; having an interest in a hot dog stand. I think hot dog stand is probably the most available option, followed by greeting cards. Problem is sourcing high quality franks in England. Sweden? I would rather they be all-beef than pork, and there being a halal or kosher option.

Traveling from Vienna to Salzburg and the Alps

During our upcoming (and first) trip to Europe, we will be traveling from Vienna to Salzburg, then on to Hallstatt in the Alps. We would like to know whether it makes more sense to rent a car in Vienna and drive to Hallstatt, or take the train to Salzburg, then rent a car. Questions: 1. Which option is less expensive? 2. If we go by car, what are some things to see between Vienna and the Salzburg area (to be visited in the one day of travel)? 3. Do we need to apply for a special permit to rent a car with an American driver's license? 4. and as long as I have your ear, any hotel or pension recommendations for the city of Salzburg or Vienna? We have most of our stay booked already, but there are few nights left to fill. [more inside]

Did Godel and Wittgenstein ever meet?

Sausage tourism in Munich and Austria?

I'm a big fan of sausage - all kinds of sausage. Street vendor sausage, fancy sausage, pork sausage, chicken sausage, beef sausage. I am traveling to Munich, Salzburg, and Vienna for a few weeks in July. Where can I get the best (for whatever definition of "best" suits you) sausages, whether it be a quick lunch at a vendor between sights or a sit-down dinner?

Restaurant Recommendations in Vienna VA (near Jammin' Java)?

Restaurant Recommendations in Vienna VA (near Jammin' Java)? My wife and myself have tickets for Willie Nile at Jammin' Java on Saturday night. We've decided to call this Saturday evening our Valentine's Day and make a night of it by getting a decent dinner before the show. I know there are a gazillion restaurants in the general area - what's a good non-chain choice for dinner for 2 in the $40-50 neighborhood? My wife doesn't like sushi, so that is out. I'm familiar with the chili at Jammin' Java, but hunched over a folding chair trying to eat chili without spilling it isn't the dinner scene we are looking for Sat night; no matter how damn good the chili might be.
