Forget bar crawls—four Cambridge and Somerville restaurants are hosting the third annual Camberville Hot Dog Crawl later this month, offering participants raffle prizes and special themed events.

Stop for a hot dog at Trina’s Starlite Lounge, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese & A4cade, The Automatic, and Buenas anytime between July 22 and 28 (or all in one day, if you’re feeling adventurous), get your crawl card stamped, and you’ll be entered into a raffle for yet-to-be-announced prizes.

Trina’s Starlite Lounge will host a kickoff hot dog brunch on July 22, and Roxy’s will have a “special hot dog menu” on July 23, according to a press release.

“Both the staff at all the stops and the people doing the crawl get so into it, and that energy catches on,” organizer Vanessa Yip, catering manager at Roxy’s Grilled Cheese & A4cade, said in the release. “People would come up to me to say they were having so much fun hitting all the stops with their friends.”

Participants ate nearly 2,000 hot dogs in last year’s event, according to Yip.

Brick and Mortar will join in for one night only with a hot dog party on July 25. People who make it to the party in addition to the crawl’s four stops will get another raffle entry.
