In hot dog news

  • I made a note to myself, but forgot to mention, that the base Dodger Dogs at the stadium are five bucks this season. You can of course pay more for the luxury models, fully equipped.
  • PupReader Joe Cislowski emails: "With all these investigative reporters leaving the Los Angeles Times, do you think one might have the free time necessary to investigate the status of Tail o' the Pup?" Indeed. The Pup still has a website up that promises "Tail O' the Pup will be re-opening in 2007 at an undisclosed Los Angeles location." But in fact, it's been gone since '05. I did recently spot the original location on North La Cienega in "Body Double" on cable.
