Angelenos will be enjoying free hot dogs if the Los Angeles Dodgers win the 2017 World Series.
Pink’s Hot Dogs, on La Brea Avenue in the Fairfax district, challenged Good Dog Houston, a Texas-based hot dog stand, to a friendly bet. The winner will give out 250 free hot dogs courtesy of the losing city’s hot dog stand.
“The inspiration for this bet was ‘how else can we show our support for the Dodgers?'” said Richard Pink, co-owner of Pink’s Hot Dogs. “I called up the most famous of the hot dog stands in Houston and I said, ‘Let’s bet. I’m behind the Dodgers, you’re behind the Astros; 250 hot dogs each depending on who wins.'”
Good Dog Houston accepted the challenge on Twitter, writing “We’re down like 4 flats on a pickup truck!! Once the @Astros win, we’ll happily take your $$ to give out free
#HotDogs to #HTown!”
The L.A. Dodgers won Game 1 of the series on Tuesday with a 3-1 score. The two teams will face each other again at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
