OMG! Even if you hated corndogs you'd totally want to eat there just cuzza the sign and lights! They had Hot Dog on a Stick everywhere out in LA too, we thrived on them for many moons and then moved to the land of no corndogs as there are none here in MO. I wonder if yours is actually part of the west coast chain? I checked their website and don't see any locations listed so I guess it's not. Something about your pic makes me think it's different somehow anyway, the font, the mozerella fingers...

I was just craving a fair myself! Mmm... everything's better on sticks...

Mmmmmmmmmmmm, cheese on a stick.

karswell, nah, this was a food booth at the Pumpkin Festival last fall in Circleville. Does Hot Dog on a Stick do booths? If they do, I'm guessing we have a winner.

Don't you love those colors and that '60s typeface?

True, SB - mmm, fried cheese on a stick and warm weather...

Great minds think alike, Waltie.

Not sure if they had booths... they were mostly located in mall food courts. The original and most famous stand at Santa Monica Beach though (right by the boardwalk) is still quite a cool little joint:

The employees wear the goofiest little outfits and hats too, and they handchurn the fresh lemonade themselves right there on location.


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
