Hot Dog Alert #25

Great news! It's baseball season again! Watching the Pirates play in the snow sort of made it a weird start to the season, but it really, finally is here again. What are your plans for this season? Catching any games.

If you do, be sure to stop in Arlington, Texas for the hot dog (sort of) that is this season's talk of the town. It's the Dilly Dog

So what is a Dilly Dog? It is a large pickle stuffed with an angus beef hot dog frank and then battered up and deep fried like a corn dog. The Texas Chili Company makes the frank and another Texas firm provides the pickles. They are keeping it local in the metroplex.

It's $10, but that is a small price to pay for eating this year's most talked about monstrosity. And the fans agree. The Rangers sold over 2,500 of them opening week and are having a difficult time keeping up with demand.

Thank you Rangers, who gave us the Boomstick Dog, for keeping baseball concessions....well...interesting.
