LAist is going on a delicious spree around LA from A to Z. This week, we continue with....D is for the Dog Days of Summer, and today, we sweat it out at Pink's.

LAist was quite lubricated and in need of some sobering up since we had just been subject to a Hollywood Boulevard overdose. It was going to be a good hard dose of Skooby’s to shake that icky afterglow. We were even able to slip right into a parking spot directly across the street. Just as we were about to step into the crosswalk, we saw – Skooby's was closed. 1:30 am and Skooby’s was shut down for the evening. Not even a last call.

So we continued along Hollywood Boulevard. We thought of Pink’s. Some of us had never been there, and though many people get their tongue tied in knots over the place, we've never wanted to go there. Parking, our number two pet peeve, is not an issue, since Pink's has a few spots of their own behind the stand. But we’ve never had the desire to wait in a line that snakes back and forth in front of the place at least five times. That’s our number one pet peeve – lines. And we don’t like hot dogs that much anyway.
