Tower Dogs, your sign next to the Tower Theatre’s office is making me hungry.
Alas, we’ll have to wait to get a taste of these specialty dogs. Co-owner Steve Duquette is waiting for city approval. He hopes to open the doors in early July.
For now, the owners are testing lots of different dogs. How do these sound to you?
- The Last Call Dog: A Polish sausage topped with hash browns, a little squirt of ketchup, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese. Meant for the crowd in the wee hours who’d like “breakfast on a bun,” Duquette says.
- The Caliente: A sausage spiked with habaneros and topped with nacho cheese sauce and cilantro. JalapeÃ±os optional.
- The California Dog: An all-beef hot dog topped with avocado, bacon, grilled onions and brown mustard.
- The Mexican Dog: A Polish sausage topped with chorizo and nacho cheese sauce.
And for those who don’t eat meat, there’ll be a vegan hot dog topped with Thai peanut sauce.
Duquette and crew need more dogs, so leave your desires in the comments below. If your idea rocks, they just might name it after you.
