Reader: A Little Competition Is Good for Denver's Dog Specialists



Denver's going to the dogs! Steve's Snappin' Dogs is celebrating its tenth anniversary this weekend with a variety of specials and freebies, and then on Monday, February 23, Wurstkuche will finally open at 2036 Broadway. Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson already have two locations of their modern take on a German beer hall in California; this will be their first venture outside of the state. Is this a wurst-case scenario?

Says TheFabulousMarkT: 
So, it's like a cross between Manneken Frites and Biker Jim's? That's original.

No, seriously, I wish them all the best. Actually, a little competition is good for our existing specialists in town.
Can Denver ever have too many good sausage emporiums? What's your favorite in town?
