Two outside-the-stadium hot dogs whetted my nitrite appetite.
When it came time to throw out the first hot dog, I really wanted to. Rolling
Roof Refreshments on the ritzy Club Level, just outside the doorway to sections 222-223, had steroidal Major League Mariner Dogs on the rotisserie for $5.50 and Minor League Mariner Dogs for $3.75. This being my third dog before the National Anthem, I went with the Minor League dog.
The dog was dry. The toasted bun curled, heavily suggestive that it was stale. About the same size, it was better cooked but not better tasting than the $2 dog on Royal Brougham. The woman who handed me my dog pointed "over there" toward unseen condiments. Could have been the Angels' dugout as far as I could tell.
One level down at Short Stop Hot Dogs, near section 125-126, the foot-long dog, $5.75, was blistery good, but tasted like chicken filler. Condiments – ketchup, mustard and relish – came in plastic pouches.
Never miss a local story.
Randy's Urban Grill, outside the stadium, is the best dog of the day so far.
