Alaskan Hot Dogs and More September 8th, 2014
An Impromptu Rhyme About a Hot Dog Stand:
Racks and racks
Of scrumptious snacks
So if you have a snack attack
Visit Kurt’s shack
(It would be convenient if at this point, Kurt acquired a yak who was black, but alak! No yak.)
Alright, I know that is bad poetry, but good food sort of moves me to poetry. The problem is, my skill is not exactly equal to the task. Fortunately, Kurt is a MUCH better cook than I am a poet.This has got to be the most gourmet hot dog I have ever eaten. Firstly, my bun (fresh from North Star bakery, this is no ordinary bun here) was toasted on the griddle. Whilst the bun is toasting, the hot dog, (from Indian Valley Meats, in several varieties) cut lengthwise, is sizzling pleasantly, smelling quite heavenly. Finally, the whole thing is stacked into a sort of hot dog sandwich and crowned with fried onions and peppers. Top with condiments and drool. Now the fascinating thing here is that this whole operation is run by Kurt Statz, who is 16 years old. He started his hot dog stand back when he was 14, and has been doing so well that he now has an employee of his own. Kurt saw that the market for food stands was open and capitalized. Besides hot dogs, the stand also serves grilled cheese sandwiches and frybread. Kurt tries to get his ingredients as locally as possible for all of his food.
So look for the silver hot dog stand outside Nonessentials by the four-way-stop near the train depot. Kurt will fry you up something tasty!
