We mentioned it before, but tonight was the first night I’ve dropped by to sample the new hot dog cart on the sidewalk just outside the Beacon Pub, near Beacon Avenue South and South Hanford Street. (It’s not the first time we’d tried — our last two attempts were coincidentally just after they’d closed for the night under their old hours.)
From the cart, you can order up hot dogs, bratwurst, hot links, italian sausage, veggie “sausage”, italian and beef sandwiches, tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers, meatball subs, sliders, black bean veggie burgers, even pasta. An entire table is packed with condiments from ketchup to cream cheese and everything in between. Also available are nachos, pretzels, chips, popcorn, candy and pop.
When I stopped by tonight, Kris Coty was working the grill. She and Laurie Lusko run the operation. Laurie owns the pub, too. She’s had the place for the last twelve or so years.
Being outside the pub, it’s okay to come with the kids, and it’s a great way to satisfy a late-night hot link craving. Maybe stop in and play pool or belt out a song on karaoke night, too.
