Eat Me? Crude Sells.


This should have probably landed on Leaving the Zip Code, but I needed to write more than I do over there and that poor blog has been quite neglected of late. 

On St. Mark’s Place in NYC resides Crif Dogs, an eatery that specializes in the ever-so-healthy deep fried wiener. Aside from dreaming up ways to clog the arteries of New Yorkers, these guys have a great sene of humor and decided to hang a larger than life hot dog out front with the words ‘Eat Me’ written in an artful mustard script.

I saw this while circling for a parking spot and dragged my daughter and nephew back there to snap a shot. 

Ask me how sick of my photog antics this next generation of my family has become. Actually, they bitch and moan about my snap happy behavior, but neither of them could deny that this would make a fabulous blog post.

Let’s face it, the signage is crude, but it did catch my attention. Did I purchase on of these death wieners? Of course not. If I am going to venture down the road of wiener death I am strictly a grilled Hebrew National Girl.

  1. LOL. I don’t think I could eat a deep fried hot dog. Really.
    St. Marks – that is a name that I’d lost in the cobwebs – one day I’ll tell you the story that made the St Marks Bar & Grill famous. Well, not famous, but memorable to say the least.

    If you remember that was a Sex in the City line. Human dressed up as a hot dog kept saying “Eat me.” Amanda, by the end of the show, called his bluff.
