Duders, here's the last two dog related eats I had before heading back to Austin. First down on Venice Beach at Jody Maroni's Sausage Kingdom. I got a giant Kobe Beef dog and saw Harry Perry the roller skating guitar turban guy. I'm not sure there is a huge difference in a Kobe Beef dog and a nice Vienna except cows that drink beer and get massaged in sake but it was still pretty tasty. Nice gimmick though.
Then I got this chili hole at a place called Barney's Beanery. A joint where you could trade your license plate for a pint, where supposedly Janis Joplin had her last drink before kicking it and where Jim Morrison got bounced for pissing on the bar. We sat in a booth.
This was one of those trendy sourdough bowls filled with shit that seems to be the hip way to serve up soup and crap. This was stuffed with some really decent chili and diced dogs. Just like being a kid again except with pints.
