Weeneez Finally Open

Weeneez, the Historic Core hot dog shop that's been looking oh-so-close for ages now, finally opened on Saturday. I haven't stopped in yet, but both times I walked by this weekend there seemed to be a good crowd inside.

When I lived in Michigan I used to frequent a shop called G&L Chili Dogs. In fact, the last summer I was back there I worked at a video production company a few blocks away from a G&L. I ate there pretty much every lunch that summer. I'd walk in and sit down at the counter, they'd bring me the usual and I'd be back at work inside of 25 minutes. Cheddar-cheese chili dogs and I were good friends. I'm holding out hope that Weeneez can offer me the same simple chili dog experience.

Weeneez is in the Security Lofts building at the corner of 5th and Spring.
