Coming up on 15 years living in Hollywood and one thing has remained the same - there always seems to be a line waiting to order a hot dog at Pink's. What's amazing is that clubs get hot and then burn out so you might see a line for a while, but not as consistently as this. There's no VIP entry, so everyone's on the same playing field. Let's put it this way, I've stopped to get a dog - even when I had just eaten - if I saw there was no line. Its just flat-out rare.
You may ask why people would stand in line for a hot dog. Well, it might not be as much about the hot dogs - which can be prepared a jazillion ways - but perhaps the fact that its an institution, and those are slowly but surely falling by the wayside. If you're in Hollywood and have never been to Pink's and you're still reading this, then you're missing the point and might as well move back to the parent's house in Peoria. There is no hipper line to stand in with great people watching and a tasty treat at the end than Pinks. Those that can't get in to Villa, LAX or any other Club du Jour without waiting in line should take a walk to Pink's.
