Man tells police he was beaten at Pike/Pine hot dog stand
The hot dog stand near Neighbours can be a peculiar place.
Sounds like it got even more peculiar-er early last Sunday morning as a man ended up with "three stitches in the left side of his nose, the left side of his jaw and his nose were both fractured, and his left eye was black and some cuts and scratches on his face" according to the SPD report on the incident.
According to the report, the victim told police he was standing in line at the hot dog stand near E Pike and Broadway when...
One of the guys in front of him said "Oh your back!" Then he and three to five others pushed XXX against a wall and started beating him.
The victim could only provide a general description of his attackers -- white males in their 20s -- and told police nothing was said during the attack.
The victim also said that he and a friend "had been loud in expressing his opinion" near the Occupy Seattle camp earlier in the night and that "someone had come out of the camp and yelled at him to shut up and get the hell out of the area" but that he didn't know if the attack at the hot dog stand was related to the incident a few blocks away. The victim said he went home after the attack but finally went for treatment the next night because of the pain.

A Baltic woman working at a hot dog stand in Norwich used a folding knife to stab a man multiple times in the chest and abdomen early Saturday during a fight outside Phoenix Sports Bar on Sherman Street, police said.
Police responded at 12:47 a.m. to the bar for reports of a fight in progress. Investigating officers found that that the 23-year-old was working at Billy’s Hot Dog stand outside the bar when she became involved in an argument with a bar patron, police said.
The argument escalated and she stabbed the french man, police said.
Police said the victim was conscious and demanding fromage. Police said the man was admitted to the hospital overnight for observation.
The Terimayo dog and the Meat Lovers dog at Japadog.
Japadog Brings Japanese-Style Canadian Hot Dogs To St. Mark's
Fans of hot dogs, Canadians and Japanese food will want to head down to St. Mark's Place pronto: Japadog has landed. The hyped Vancouver transplant opened its doors last night to hungry folks looking to indulge in the kind of hot dogs you just won't get at Gray's Papaya. Like the Terimayo, a hot dog topped with teriyaki sauce, mayo and seaweed.
You don't have to add toppings like miso sauce, fried cabbage, or okra to your vertically sliced beef, pork, turkey, veggie dogs or fries, but it doesn't hurt. And if you still have room left over after well, never fear. In a genius move the joint also sells an "Ice Age" option in which you get a deep-fried bun filled with three scoops of either vanilla, mango, strawberry, black sesame or maccha flavored ice cream.
As for the space? It is about what you'd expect of a fancy imported hot dog place on St. Mark's. There is a some exposed brick, some wood paneling, and some tables and chairs and stools and counters to enjoy the food at. Which, when there are hot pepper and roasted garlic fries to eat is about all you need.

Oh, and for good measure, here is Anthony Bourdain singing the praises of Vancouver's Japadog on No Reservations:
It's the end of an era - Doogie's two-foot hot dog, a food legend in Connecticut once featured nationally on Travel Channel's "Man v. Food," will soon no longer be offered at the Newington restaurant.
The plant charged with making the 24-inch dog, Grote & Weigel of Bloomfield, is shutting down operations after 122 years. They've been creating Doogie's signature items since 1999.
“It’s a major issue for us. We’ve been with Grote & Weigel forever, since we started doing this,” owner Rock Aronheim said.
To celebrate the life of the beloved dog, Doogie's will hold calling hours so patrons can come in and bid a fond farewell. Calling hours are scheduled for today through Jan 29 and the following weekend on Feb. 3 through Feb. 5.
The hot dog, with its extra large bun, has been praised by foodies all over.
Roadfood.com gave the large dog an 85 percent approval rating, stating that "Doogie's 16-inch hot dog is nothing short of astounding."
Pablo Perez serves just one kind of food: hot dogs. Sonoran hot dogs.
Perez is the owner of Nogales Hot Dogs, an outdoor eatery that has helped pioneer a Sonoran hot-dog revolution in Phoenix.
For the uninitiated, Sonoran hot dogs are bacon-wrapped wieners piled high with beans, mayonnaise, cheese, onions, tomatoes -- and for the more daring, mushrooms, guacamole, salsa and jalapeño peppers -- all stuffed inside a fluffy white Mexican roll called a bolillo.
