Enjoying a hot dog at the ballpark is an American tradition, but what the Indians are doing this season is far from traditional.
Progressive Field is now home to an outpost of wacky Cleveland hot dog joint Happy Dog. One of the options is a hot dog with bacon, mac and cheese, and Froot Loops.
I thought it was an April Fool’s joke but quickly discovered it is not. Happy Dog is real. They’ve got two locations in Cleveland where they serve hot dogs with a variety of toppings. Some of them are new takes on classic hot dog add-ons (white beer cheese fondue, French Brie), others are more out-of-the-box (SpaghettiOs, chunky peanut butter, Froot Loops).
And you thought the Pirates’ caramel-jalapeno hot dog was bad.
