Video: An Ode to the (Bacon-Wrapped) Hot Dog Lady

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The woman who grills the official hot dog of Los Angeles has her own video tribute: Hot Dog Lady. The comedy group that put together the video We're Still Friends writes:

She feeds us when we’re famished, helps hold off that hangover, and throws in chips and a drink for only a dollar fifty extra. It’s high time she got some love.

It's a pretty silly video that features a dude smoking a joint in a D.A.R.E. shirt, and one patron violating the sacred fellowship of drunks to get to the front of the line. Don't worry, bro, hot dog lady always has a dog for you fresh off the grill!
