Major League Baseball’s Opening Day yesterday was a huge hit, and the Astros started the season with a bang:
And the ‘Stros won 3-0 over the Mariners!
Even Dallas had a little Opening Day celebration for their “baseball team:”
Dallas’ most beautiful were out in full.
But if crowds, sweat, and balls aren’t really your scene, nine minutes from the Juice Box downtown, Houstonians can still get into the spirit with a more refined variety of a baseball classic.
This week, upscale steakhouse B&B Butchers is unveiling a limited edition menu of hot dogs, including a $26 “Wagyu frank topped with truffle-infused honey, bacon, and bleu cheese,” and a $42 “Wellie Dog…baked in puff pastry with mushrooms and foie gras.”
But the home run of the specialty menu is a $124 “Break the Bank Frank,” which comes with “a truffle butter-rotated bun topped with filet mignon, lobster, and 24-karat fold flakes.”
This actually isn’t the first time gold-topped hot dogs have been in the news:
At Super Bowl 50 last year in California, a similar hot dog was served at Levi Stadium.
Of course, the CA golden dog was about $112 cheaper than Houston’s because everything’s bigger in Texas – including your bill.
Play ball, y’all!
