Everything can go back to normal around here.
Now that Dirt Dog (L.A.'s street food-inspired hot dog spot) has a new outpost in Vegas, dramatically upping the odds that you'll take down a patty melt-dog before your tenth round.
It's open now at Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally's. And stays open on weekends until 2am. So you and your company can almost always get a hot dog slathered in outlandish toppings at their walk-up counter in the midst of a blurry night.
You might notice graffitied walls, Tupac hiding in an Angeleno-heavy mural and a red, black and white color palette. Or you might be too distracted by the notion of a hot dog covered in bacon-cheddar.
Throwing caution to the wind, you opt for the Red Dog, topped with spicy tomato chile sauce and chipotle aioli, along with a good beer. Emboldened, your companion orders a patty melt dog and filthy fries covered in guacamole and some other craziness.
There's even talk of deep-fried Oreos.
And a bond of silence that can never be broken.
