Today is National Hot Dog Day, and since our first place team (whoot!) isn't playing in town tonight, you can't celebrate with a Dodger Dog at the Stadium. So where else can you go to partake in some serious encased meat goodness?

There are plenty of touted purveyors of hot diggity dogs here in this town (Let's Be Frank, Umami's new hot dog stand in Burbank, and Dog Haus come to mind), but our current fave is the new kid on the block, Fritzi Dog.

And if you're dining with a vegetarian, you needn't worry; Fritzi also has a sous vide carrot dog that'll knock their socks off.

Here's what it looks like:
