It is the end of the world as we know it and Ms. Goofy and I are going out with a bang. Danger Dogs were on our list of things to do and a trip to ‘Uptown Oakland’ to ‘Xolo’ would satisfy our wish. It has been a strange day. We arrived at Xolo and met this man in a clean pressed military uniform. He asked us if we knew were he could find an establishment of liquor consumption. We could not help him and I asked if he was on shore leave. He said no he was only an actor waiting to be picked up at a certain corner to go film a movie. Ms. Goofy ventured to guess that it was for an Adult movie.
The ‘Danger Dog’ is a bacon wrapped hot dog, mayonnaise, mustard, pinto beans, cheese, pickled jalapenos, and avocado on a bollillo roll. It was a holy mess and I guess I deserve it on this final day. Xolo is located across from the newly renovated Fox Theater in Oakland. Chile Verde review to follow shortly.
