In fifth grade our science teacher spent all year screening videos of his family’s hot dog eating contests for America’s Funniest Home Videos, which taught us lots about human digestion limits and significantly less about photosynthesis. However, like its BFF, the hamburger, the hot dog has since undergone a dazzling Renaissance, so here’s to celebrating how hot dogs light up our lives with 504ward’s Restaurant Night at Dat Dog.
That’s right. We said Dat Dog. For those who’ve missed the heavenly choirs belting hot dog hallelujahs, Dat Dog isn’t the Leonardo or Michaelangelo of this Renaissance, it’s the whole Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle gang. Some folks dress dogs in sweaters and bows. We prefer the 17 Dat Dog accessories, ranging from classic Creole mustard and onions to etoufee, guacamole, and wasabi, all atop your choice sausages (think kielbasa, crawfish, alligator, veggie...)
We know, we know: normally Restaurant Nights take you to fancy-pants places where eatin’ with your hands is so caveman-century. But with the crack of baseballs hittin’ bats, blueberries and peaches hittin’ stores, and half of NOLA hittin’ the Fly, we’re ready for a hands-on, faces-smeared, $2 beer kind of meal. So get ready for a gourmet hot dog with all the fixin’s, french fries, and a homemade root beer/coke/nectar soda float - all for just $10. Sign up here.

To ensure an equal-opportunity experience, we hired an Undercover Vegetarian to infiltrate Dat Dog. Never fear, meat-shunners: our agent passed 'em with flying colors.
That said, Dat Dog has scoured the world to bring the best sausages back to NOLA, guaranteeing you more good times than even Bob Saget could offer.
If you plan to get friendly with any cute guys or girls across the picnic tables, FYI: breath mints will be in order. Onions are aplenty.
