Hot Dog Nostalgia

New, 1 comment

Doug Kriegel writes an Op-Ed piece today about his days selling hot dogs at Ebbets Field in the 50's. Most interesting is how those 20 cent franks would never pass muster with the DOH today: "We also carried a box of rolls, mustard in an open plastic container and a large fork to spear the hot dogs. If the fork or the mustard stick fell on the ground, no problem — you wiped it off with your handkerchief. The water that the hot dogs were sitting in would often turn mustard-colored in the tray, and on hot summer days you’d be sweating into it." [NYT]
