Hi! Frinklin and I plan to be at The Red Hot on Wednesday night about 6ish. Anyone else planning on stopping by for some beer and hot dogs?? We'd love to say hi!

We're there. That sounds like a great idea -- glad to see that it's a "go" over there. See you guys Wednesday! It'd be sweet if other bloggers make it on opening day. Could become our thing...

Yum. The least we can do is swamp them the first day and give them the blogger boost. Its up to them whether they can sustain it or not.

Sweet! Lets make it huge!

I've got two more friends that will probably join in the fun.

So, Erik, that was a pretty non-committal post. You going to come too?

Hmmmm......Hot Dogs....Beer...sounds good...

Sounds like a great opening. I think I can make it.

I walked by there last night. Could not see in.

With new businesses opsing focusing on hot dogs, cupcakes and beer by the can, it shows how difficult it is to predict what businesses will work in Tacoma.

Is this all the support we can garner for The Red Hot? C'mon people!

I invited our cartoonist and Tacoma's award winning reporter. Should be quite a show. Looks like they have some cool pinball.

(From The Red Hot)


I wanted to put up a fancy pdf of the menu, but due to enough headaches today (sign is MIA, failed delivery, etc.), here is the menu in it’s simplest form. We open at 11am, come watch us work out the kinks!

The Chicago $3.50

All beef dog cradled in a poppy-seed bun, topped with yellow mustard, relish, chopped onions, tomatoes,
a pickle spear, a couple of spicy sport peppers, and a dash of celery salt. The timeless meal-on-a-bun classic.

The Coney $3.50

All beef dog, mustard and onions, topped off with The Red Hot’s very own chili sauce. None better.

The Red Hot $3.00

The basic ballpark namesake, all killer and no filler. The dog on which empires and memories were built…
and sustained. All beef dog, your choice of mustard, onions, & relish.

6th Ave Strut $3.50

Tomatoes, onions, and cream cheese finish off an all beef dog to create the quintessential northwest version
of the hot dog.

Puget Polish $3.50

Deli mustard, onions, and 2 sport peppers sit alongside a hearty polish sausage in a poppyseed bun.

Murray Morgan Bridge Brat $3.50

An awesome premium Bratwurst sausage paired up with yellow mustard and sauerkraut. For the European in all of us.

T-Dome T-Dog $3.00

Where’s the beef? For our patrons who wish to remain health conscious, healthy or not. Prepared like a
Chicago (poppy-seed bun, mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, pickle spear, sport peppers, celery salt), but with a 100% natural, free-range turkey frank in place of the beef. Gobble gobble, pilgrim.

Destiny City Slaw Dog $3.75

Two Red Hot signatures, our chili sauce AND our very own Southern-style cole slaw, paired up with onions
and mustard to top off this Southern classic.

North End Not Dog $3.75

Herbivores rejoice! no animals were harmed in the making of this hot dog. Served up just like the Chicago..

Naked Narrows $3.00

Back to basics, stripped down, the heart of the meal. No buns, all funs. Two all-beef franks on a stick
suspended over a sea of ketchup and mustard. That’s it.

Tideflats $5.75

Our most industrial strength hot dog creation. Two all beef dogs on an open-faced bun, topped with (get
ready for this) mustard, ketchup, onions, relish, tomatoes, a pickle spear, sport peppers, jalapenos, cole slaw, sauerkraut, giardiniera, nacho cheese sauce, and our own Red Hot chili sauce. You know you want to.

If you don’t see it listed, but you gotta have it, feel free to add these toppings at no extra charge:
Yellow mustard, deli mustard, onions, relish, celery salt, and ketchup.

If it’s not listed in the description, but you REALLY gotta have it, feel free to add any of these for 25 cents:
giardiniera, cream cheese, nacho cheese sauce, tomato, mayonnaise, cole slaw, sport peppers, jalapenos, pickle spear, sauerkraut, and shredded cheese.

I can't wait. I hope we fill the place up!

by Angela on 8/15/2007 @ 9:25am
Steve and I will definitely be there!

Menu looks great. Locally inspired names nicely done.

Damn good times, had by all. I'm certainly looking forward to going back.

For dinner tonight I've decided, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Murray Morgan Bridge Brat is for me. I will be full and Euro by 7pm. Rad.
