Taking a sick day. Should be back in action on Monday.

01/19/2011 season opener part II. I will just be on the other side of the commons until further notice.


Alright...So, apparently I learned from a visit by the VCU police that not all sidewalks are public, even by a public school. So to those who came by for their hot dog fix today, I am sincerely sorry. We will roll with the punches and tomorrow I will be setting up next to my friends at Olio and Nate's. Thanks to Jared and Q and all my customers for your support.


Today...the return of the cart! At my usual spot in front of the library at VCU. Look forward to seeing the familiar faces.


Setting up shortly in front of Gallery 5 for First Friday. Hope to see you there.


Last week at VCU til mid January. The cart will be at the normal spot Tuesday, Wednesday and most likely Friday. Hope to see you out there. Our new special for the week is the Buffalo Dog- A Bacon Dog dipped in Buffalo Sauce and topped with diced celery and blue cheese.


Introducing a new special dog today. Sriracha Pork Dog- braised pork, sriracha, and made from scratch cucumber relish. Also, still doing the pancetta dog all week.


Might be shutting down a little early today to take care of some repairs, so come by on the early side to try the new special for the week...a deep fried pancetta dog with provolone and chopped hot peppers.


My access to VCU was blocked today...oh well. Setting up for First Friday at Gallery 5. Also will be setting up on Broad Street tomorrow for the Parade. If I can I will post a more exact location once I know what it is.
