The temperatures and blackjack tables are not the only things heating up in Reno, Nevada this summer. The Reno Aces are bringing the heat when it comes to hot dog offerings.
The Aces, gentlemen that they are, have designed the Versus Dog, a hot dog intended to honor the team they happen to be hosting. All of their opponents get toppings related to their home cities on HALF of a hot dog. The other half, owned by the Aces, remains consistent.
The Reno part of the dog has coleslaw and pulled pork. Here is the rundown of what the other fifty percent sports dependent upon opponent:
Nashville: Steak House Dog- tomato, caramelized onion, steak sauce
Memphis: Bacon BBQ Dog- chopped bacon, BBQ sauce, shredded cheddar
Salt Lake: Salty Dog- deep fried pickles, spicy mustard, chopped bacon
New Orleans: Cajun Dog- pepper jack cheese, w. Onion, tomato, creole aioli
Tacoma: Alpine Frank- sautéed onion/mushroom, Swiss
Sacramento: Mac Dog- 3 cheese mac, parsley and Just Plain Dog with Ketchup
Albuquerque: Baja Dog- fajita blend bell peppers, pico, cilantro lime crème
Fresno: Taco Dog- Ground beef, lettuce, Tomato and shredded cheese, hot sauce
Las Vegas: Street Dog- chopped bacon, onion, bell pepper, jalapeño

That's a lot of trips to the ballpark to check out each dog. But hey, it's summer, it Reno, and nothing beats a hot summer night than an outing at the ballpark. Try them all and then try your luck at the slots.
