The IBR is over and it’s time to have a little fun!!

Yes, it’s that time again. "Bite the Wieeenie" at Pink’s in Los Angeles, Saturday, Nov 21, 2009.

Pink's is an honest-to-goodness Hollywood icon, sub-cultural gathering spot and 2007 IBR bonus location. The establishment doesn't know we are coming nor do they care. Whether you're Mike Kneebone, Barack Obama, Lisa Landry, Angelina Jolie, or Elvis, everyone waits in line. And the 1-hour+ wait at midnight for a $3.10 chili dog is a unique Hollywood experience.

Jacked up pickups, bouncing lowriders, Porsches, pimpmobiles, junkers, and LD motorcycle rigs all share a miniscule parking lot while stretch limos and Hummers circle the block while their contents wait in the 1-hour+ line.

Besides us LDRiders with ATGATT, it would not be unusual to see unique body piercing, facial tattoos, the best body modifications that money can buy, spikes and dreadlocks, prom dresses, grunge street wear and barefoot surfers standing in line.



If you're into hot dogs . . . check this amazing menu out.

The top-of-the-line gastrointestinal bomb is the legendary "THREE DOG NIGHT" -- 3 hot dogs, wrapped in a giant tortilla, 3 slices of cheese, 3 slices of bacon, chili & onions all for … $7.15!!!!!!!!
