In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Restaurant Fiction's Monis Rose joins Michael to pretend to learn the Eat Deets about Hot Dog on a Stick because he already knows everything

○ Monis raps the whitest version of an Ice Cube song that references Hot Dog on a Stick

Part 2: Restaurant Fiction podcast host Monis Rose is here to wax romantic over the "character" of the original Hot Dog on a Stick kiosk by the Santa Monica Pier

○ There's nowhere to sit, so the boys pick a dragon/pirate ship playground as their venue
Public beachside seating has empty beer bottles and even a used Magnum love glove nearby...
○ Military helicopters are circling us overhead and it makes us ask What's Going On Over There?
○ Harrison Augustine 💸 Arrylius XIV talks about the recreational drug habits of the ultra-wealthy
