^It is. This year on free admission day, the park filled to capacity at around 9:30. People lined up as early as 7 am to get in free.

I've gone pantless!

^That's what I'm thinking. Lightning might strike me dead if I entered that place. I would love to read a TR though!

Obviously, I don't want to give these people any money. On the other hand, I'm even less interested in going there (or, really, anywhere) on special free day. But I do want to see it--both from a completest standpoint, and out of morbid curiosity.

If I am going to do it though, I want to make sure that it's epic. So the team-up idea seems like a good way to help justify it. Smisty and Bryan are on board, but no word from Adam yet.

[Edit: Unfortunately, the physical Hula Dog (or, as it was later know, "Kona Dog") building has closed. However, they now apparently have a food truck!? -Erik]

When it comes to food, I think it's safe to say that I'm a bit more "Oddventurous" than Smisty. So I ended up going to this next place by myself....

Hula Dog
01IMGP2880.JPG
Located on I-Drive, near Wet 'n Wild, beneath a giant billboard advertising McDonald's (natch), Hula Dog offers "authentic Hawaiian-style hot dogs."

I've never actually been to Hawaii, so I'm in no position to judge their authenticity. But Hula Dog was opened about three months ago by a guy who was stationed in Hawaii and apparently really liked their hot dogs.

Help me, magic surf board! How does this work??

Below this are more boring ingredients you can get if you prefer your hot dogs a bit less Hawaiian. But what fun would that be?

Ta-da! The bread is very soft, and pretty much covers the entire dog. What you see here cost me about $7.50.

If I have a complaint, it's that the hours are a bit unpredictable. (I can't stand when a place is closed between "lunch" and "dinner.") But I guess you have to kind of expect that when it's just a couple of guys bootstrapping a new business and trying to do everything themselves. And, in any case, the hot dogs are really good!

I don't get it.

Yeah for Hula Dog!. I ate at one in Hawaii last year. The stuff you can put on them is a little odd but good.

This looks interesting. I must try a hula dog!

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

What exactly was on that hot dog? It looked somewhat decent. Anyway, Interesting find. I'm going to Universal over the summer, so maybe I'll have to check that place out.
