It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … Rockstar Girl!
By day she’s a cube-dwelling worker bee. Come sunset she’s a rocker chick. Her fuel of choice? Rockstar Dogs, of course, from the eponymous hot dog stand opening today.
The tiny, late-night spot has a big presence — a stripper pole so patrons can dance for their dog (do it after 10, and it’s on the house), complimentary tchotchkes with purchase (guitar picks, temporary tattoos), even a Willy Wonka-style contest that guarantees free dogs for a year to the lucky five who find the golden ticket.
Rockstar is earth friendly to boot, using a biodiesel Mercedes that’s fueled by the French fryer’s used oil (for reals).
And oh, right, the food. Find fourteen dog combos, fresh toppings (Merkts cheddar, grilled jalapenos, bacon), and pickles sliced to order.
It’s just what any true superhero needs.
Hey, it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there.
Rockstar Dogs, 801 North Ashland Avenue, at Chicago Avenue (312-421-2364).
