And the ‘Stros won 3-0 over the Mariners!

Even Dallas had a little Opening Day celebration for their “baseball team:”

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!
