Pirates of the San Fernando Valley: Curse of the Bacon-Wrapped Wiener

Breakfast, Lunch & Grog

Some good reporting by LA Weekly about the (illegal) meat miracle, the bacon-wrapped hot dog. Meat journalism doesn’t get much better than this:

Below the legal vendors are the more ubiquitous operators of homemade carts, which usually consist of propane tanks strapped to modified baby strollers, Target shopping carts or, in most cases, tool carts. They operate completely outside of codes and regulations, their particular rules and organizational methods a mystery to outsiders.

Licensed vendors… refer to the makeshift bacon-wrapped-hot-dog vendors as “ambulantes” or “piratas,” colloquial terms for unlicensed street vendors in Mexico.

Those sound like the most magical pirate Target shopping carts ever.
