All-You-Can-Eat Dodger Dogs... YES!!!
If you’re a hooligan comme moi, you frequently find yourself situated in the pavilion seats at Dodger games. The greater powers that be decided that although the right-field pavilion is already a madhouse of drunken debauchery, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to throw all-you-can-eat Dodger Dogs in with the cost of admission.
Free peanuts and soda to boot? Damn. But calm down for a second sports fans, beer will not be comped -- it isn't sold in the pavilions -- although that isn't really a problem since most opt to get blitzed in the parking lot ahead of time in order to enhance the outfield seating experience. The premium is an extra $6 per ticket next season but that is a small price to pay if you're in the business of eating buttloads of hot dogs. Even Kobayashi goes out to the occasional ball game, right?
The implementation of endless Dodger Dogs is the result of club owners’ concern over losing families at the park... families with chubby little children who can only be coaxed into a stadium by bottomless buckets of hot dogs nestled snugly between their knees.
Here at LAist we love Dodger Dogs as much as the next fan, but we are concerned about the temptation to polish off more than two dogs in one game -- unless of course it were to go past 11 innings.
