Pink's gets stuck up -- this time, it's personal

April 6, 2010 | 10:16 pm

Talk about depravity -- knocking over a hot dog stand is it.

Pink's, the venerable and renowned Hollywood hot dog joint, got held up at gunpoint at 3:35 on Monday morning, which is one of the rare times of the day when he would not have had to wait in an immensely long line. And when the employees told the gunman they couldn't get into the safe, he made off with the tip jar. So low.

The reason this is personal is that I am happy to say that Pink's named a hot dog after me. The Patt Morrison Baja Veggie Dog is topped with guacamole, tomatoes and onions. All vegan, all delish. 

Bad as it was, I am bracing for something even worse -- that police find out that the guy who made off with the Pink's money spent his loot at In-N-Out Burger. Scum.
