The Hot Dog Death March Was A Success!

A big Metblogs THANK YOU to all who came along on this past weekend’s Hot Dog Death March–we made lots of new friends & bonded with old ones. How can you not bond, after all, over weenies & pastrami & chili wrapped in a tortilla? It’s like going to war. If you live, you come back with friends for life.

And live we did! Between 40-50 Death Marchers converged on Pink’s around 3pm on Saturday. Pink’s was incredibly kind & gifted us our first 20 or so chili dogs and drinks. Thank you, Pink’s! A big thanks to Oki-Dog & Skooby’s as well for being such good sports. Skooby’s also gifted us a few shirts to give away–thanks guys!

We played hot dog games, enjoyed hot dog trivia, shared hot dog haiku and gave out hot dog prizes! Big ups to Julia for getting the t-shirts and the temporary tattoos made with Spencer’s great logo, and then giving them all away for free! What a gal!

There are more recaps on our Hot Dog Death March blog, as well as 278 (and growing) photos in our Hot Dog Death March photo pool on flickr, so check ’em all out! Chal took video of our Hot Dog Haiku contest which we’ll be posting shortly.

One Death Marcher, David, sent us this mp3 of an old punk song about Oki-Dog. Here it is, with a montage of photos from Saturday, taken by Mr. Hooks, Superdave, Skosakura & Abiko79 on flickr. Enjoy!

Team Hot Dog! Uniforms for Hot Dog Death March

Ok, the “uniforms” aren’t mandatory, but I’m sure planning on wearing as much wacky hot dog gear as I can to the upcoming Hot Dog Death March on June 13.

Like this hat:

hot_dog_hat If you, too, would like a hot dog hat, you can buy your very own here.

And if you, too, would like to join us in a few weeks as we rage against the dying of the weenie, as we throw our very bodies into the mustard-and-ketchup abyss, as we launch once more into the bratwurst breach, well, learn more about LA Metblogs’ Hot Dog Death March here.

I’ll see you there. How will you know me…?

I’ll be the one with the hat.
