Hot Dog Hot Spot: DC-3

According to the oh-so-entertaining reference source Wikipedia:
"The Douglas DC-3 is an American fixed-wing, propeller-driven aircraft whose speed and range revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Because of its lasting impact on the airline industry and World War II it is generally regarded as one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made. Many DC-3s are still used in all parts of the world."

KB and I discovered one of the many uses for a DC-3... hot dogs! The latest addition to one of our favorite streets in the District is a fantastic hot dog restaurant that recreates beloved hot dogs from around the country, which can be ordered with a side-order of fried pickles, cotton candy, or homemade ice cream. The little diner has a DC-3 theme, complete with tables resembling the wings of an airplane (grommets and all) and a massive propeller mounted to the wall.

The hot dogs are delicious, and the atmosphere is light-hearted. It's so enjoyable, in fact, that KB and I quite unintentionally spent 3 hours there for lunch.

Here's to realizing frips are amazing,
