Everyone knows about Pink’s Hot Dogs on Melrose and La Brea, but not everyone knows that it is a family-owned business. Richard Pink, whose parents founded the Hollywood eatery in 1939, wanted to let our readers know about their upcoming celebration. This month marks the 75th anniversary of the iconic late-night favorite. It is rare to find a restaurant that has stayed in the same location, owned by the same family, for so long. To mark the occasion, for 7 nights, starting November 7th through November 13, Pink’s will be selling chili dogs for only 75 cents starting at 7pm and ending 75 minutes later (at 8:15 for the math-impaired). What is the maximum number of dogs per order? You got it – seven!
The Pink family will donate 100% of the proceeds of sales during the 75 minute period to a different charity each night. The LA Beat has been seeing the Pink family at charity events for years, donating their time and hot dogs to causes like The LA Zoo and Alex’s Lemonade. It is our opportunity to show our love while getting a great deal and giving back to the community. Chili Dogs for Charity!
