What fun! I'm glad you finally made it over there. I'm pretty sure I've seen it in a few movies or tv shows. Do they make the hot dogs there? I'm just wondering what makes them so good.

I think they special order them from a place and have their own "secret" recipe. I know that they use natural casings so that they have a "pop" when you bite into them. I think it's a combo of the quality dogs and awesome toppings.

No, it's a vegetarian dog. No cheese, vegans don't eat any animal products, so I think it was like onions and tomatoes and guacamole.

The vegan dog could be soy like a nice burger is...

I've only been to Hollywood once before and I remember our tour guide pointing out Pinks

If I had known there was a veggie dog I would have forced him to stop the tour bus!

Okay, going to catch up.

Nice! I went for the first time this year. No clue, considering I love the BW area, why except that I'm always on a very strict budget. I JUST LOVED IT!

Have fun!

Ooh I hope you like it there. We have enjoyed it the last 2 times and will probably book it again in December.
The cookout menu looks good.
I loved Pinks when I lived out there.

So this isn't an update for the trip that this report is about, but if you notice in my signature, the next ticker is for the D23 Expo. I'll be doing a full blown Trip Report for that trip, but I won't start that until about the week beforehand. Until then when they leak small tidbits of information, I'll talk about it here.

Now PIO, I know that this is yet another event that you will see my pictures and tell me that as nice as the pictures are, you would really like to hear the event! However, for those who will be there, this should prove to be one heck of an amazing performance. Separately each of these guys have been amazing. With them together, there will not be a dry eye in the house!


For one night only, two of the world’s most celebrated songwriters and composers will take to the stage for “Richard M. Sherman and Alan Menken: The Disney Songbook.” The concert will take place at the D23 Expo 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center in the D23 Expo Arena on Saturday, August 10.

Together Sherman and Menken have won a combined 10 Academy Awards for their work with Disney, and have composed music and songs for more than three dozen Disney feature films, over two dozen Disney Park attractions, and half a dozen Disney musicals on Broadway.

“I can’t express how excited I am that my esteemed friend Alan Menken and I will be sharing the same bill for the very first time,” said Sherman. “Alan is an incredible talent, and I know we’re both thrilled to be performing for Disney’s most ardent fans—they’re the best and I can’t wait to be a part of what promises to be a very special night for all of us.”

“Richard Sherman and I share so many things; our cherished association with The Walt Disney Company, the blessing of having the opportunity to share our musical talents with “children of all ages” and a genuine mutual admiration—but one thing we’ve never gotten to share is a concert stage,” said Menken. “This summer at the D23 Expo 2013, we will do just that. And I can’t think of anyone I’d prefer to share that stage with. Richard, along with his brother Robert, wrote songs that filled my formative years with joy and fantasy. And, all these years later, I can say with complete honesty that there is no one I’ve met in our business who is more warm and generous than my friend and fellow songwriter, Richard Sherman.

Admission to the concert will be on a first-come, first-served basis and is included in the price of a ticket to the D23 Expo. In addition to the 4,000-seat D23 Expo Arena, the concert will be simulcast into a 2,000-seat overflow theater inside the Convention Center.
