Whereas a weekly hamburger fix is the norm for some of you, at my house, it's the street taco or the hot dog -- the latter because my kid is extremely picky about where he'll eat a burger (Old School Burgers is about the only place that doesn't make him gag, although he has yet to try Bud's Bar), but he's far more forgiving about where he'll down a dog. The snap above comes from his favorite hot dog joint in Denver, and the only hint I'm giving is that it doesn't come from a guy in a mobile cart on the corner of 16th Street and Arapahoe, or California or Welton -- or any other downtown thoroughfare.
