The Frankenstand

I went to Club Los Globos last night to see Ahkiyyini and The Shrine with some homies. After their shred sessions we went out front to drink some beers in the bushes. There were two food carts out front, some hippy Indian truck and The Frankenstand. 


The Frankenstand is a Monster themed all vegan hot dog cart manned by a festive little dude named Raymond who steams the crap out of some Tofurkey dogs. I asked him where he got his steamer from, he said Cleveland :) So the deal with Raymond's cart is he serves all vegan hot dogs. He has 3 options, The Creature, The Witch and The Franken. I went with The Witch.

Named after your mom, this hot dog is a kielbasa steamed in Full Sail Ale. He has an array of CONDOMents in squeeze bottles which include mustard, doo-doo brown mustard, bbq sawse and VAGinaise. He also has a tray of jalapenos, diced onions, sauerkraut and relish. You can pile on as much of this crap as you like. I like the fact that he is non-jewi$h about the Vegenaise, that shit is expensive and he just has it sitting there out in the open, I'm surprised no one has rolled by and jacked that bottle. I put a fuck-ton of Vegenaise, mustard, hot sauze, relish, jalapenos and sauerkraut in true VBE fashion. I love waking up the next morning and running to the can cause I fudged my undies in my sleep.


Raymond and I talked about chili and tacos and a bunch of other crap. He was explained to me the perils of food carting: The drunx, the run-ins with the health inspector and people's confusion about plant based food. He makes it seem so romantic, like drug dealing or whoring. He convinced me to start my own food cart out in New York. We talked about other things he could steam, I told him about an upstate New York recipe for steamed hams, also the football fish would be great to steam and throw up in a taco.


My dog was 5 dollarses, an appropriate price for the convenience of vegan food the second you step out of a club. The condiments make it worth while.
