Recently I took a little trip to Pinks Hot Dogs. World famous Pink’s Hot Dogs, I should say. Celebrities from about five generations of Hollywood royalty have to come to this place as well as you average Joe to enjoy these deliciously decadent treats. Founded in 1939, this place offers interesting processed meat between buns of various varieties such as Lord of The Rings (a 10″ Stretch Dog with BBQ sauce), a Rosie O’Donell ( 10″ Stretch Dog, topped with mustard, onions, chili and sauerkraut topped with onion rings), and my personal favorite: the L.A. Philharmonic Conductor Gustavo Dudamel Dog ( Stretch hot dog, guacamole, American & Swiss cheese, fajitas mix, jalapeno slice, topped with tortilla chips).
Needless to say, after a night of partying hard with the homies (read: leisure with my fellow gentlemen), this is the stop for a post midnight meal. They are open until 3am!! Well, imagine my surprise (or lack thereof) to see one of our scraper mats right there at the entrance of this reputable establishment! I CAN’T ESCAPE THEM! MATS ARE EVERYWHERE! THEY CONSUME!! NOOO!!! But my reward was a delicious dog and an idea for my blog. I couldn’t complain.
After quickly scarfing through the last of my meal, a commotion at the front of the line started. Two girls were getting physical…. violently physical. Well, get this. One of the girls was wearing some funky shoes and as she made a lunge for this smaller enemy combatant, I noticed that the grip of the rubber door mat did a really good job keeping a grip on the floor. While not exactly the best example to boast functionality of these outdoor mats, it sure did what it was supposed to do.
