You’ve all been. Of course it’s overrated. It’s a hot dog. How great can a hot dog be? Hot Doug’s in Chicago is great, but Pinks is just a hot dog. You can even tell. Do you think that weiner is special? Is it hand crafted? No, it’s from a pack of frozen weiners. The buns aren’t home baked, it’s from a plastic bag of buns. So why is it so crowded? Above is the “Rosie” by the way.
It’s the waiting in line, the atmosphere to anticipation. The hot dog is whatever, so-so, but the wait, and vibe of excitement is quite great. But why are there so many Asians there. I think the line was nearly 50% Asian. Are Asians followers of hype? I’ve been to Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles, and when I’ve been, there’s about 40-50% Asians eating there and tons waiting outside. I guess I’ve added to that, but the thing is, I don’t go back.
