Pink's --- WTF!

vlad | Nov 18, 2007 02:51 PM

Can someone please explain the whole Pink's phenomenon to me? Waited an hour to get a totally unremarkable hot dog the other day as we had a relative in town who wanted the Pink's experience.

Do the people, you know, the hipster locals, that line up all the time actually think they are getting something that is even remotely better than any other hot dog? I am not saying that Pink's dogs are bad or over-priced, well, maybe over-priced, but a hot dog is a hot dog. And I can't say that experience of waiting in line is particularly entertaining.

Anyone else feel my pain? Or am I just a grouch who doesn't get it?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
