Hot Dog Stands

If you have ever eaten at a "Hot Dog on a Stick" location, this was its first stand opened at Santa Monica's Muscle Beach back in 1946.
I'm not a hot dog fan, but I love their lemonade. You can see the lime lemonade, original lemonade, and cherry lemonade dispensers through the window. The green one might be appropriate for today.

I saw this quaint little stand in Solvang, CA during my last trip. I couldn't find too much information about it on the internet, but I thought the signs on its windows tell the story. Click on the picture for a larger view.

Happy St. Patrick's Day,

Solvang? That name sounds as much as a Norwegian name as anything I could thing of! But I have never heard of Hod Dog on a stick. Sounds kind of special.

PS Thank you for the comments. The lens I used was a Canon EF 70-300mm IS at 300mm on my Canon 40 D (on a tri-pod of course). It was taken as RAW, cropped and processed in PS CS3.

Still, the pictures are worth a million words. I like hot dogs. I still remember my days in New york tasting these green papaya hotdogs!
