Pink's, the Hollywood hot dog spot famous for its dogs and its long lines, is celebrating its 75th anniversary by giving away chili dogs for only 75 cents. From November 7 to 13 at 7 p.m. (and for following 75 minutes), you can get an all-beef dog covered in chili, mustard and onions for under a buck, L.A. Times reports. There is a limit of seven dogs per order. Each night, Pink's will be donating the proceeds to a different charity.

Pink's was started in 1939 by Paul and Betty Pink as a pushcart. The stand at LaBrea and Melrose is currently run by the Pinks' children: Gloria and Richard Pink, and Richard's wife, Beverly.
