MiniBite: Hot Dogs in the Public Garden

There's really no better way of spending a beautiful spring lunch hour than sitting by the water in the Public Garden and watching the swan boats paddle by...oh yeah, and eating HOT DOGS.  My co-workers and I stopped by the frosty truck on the corner of Boylston and Arlington to grab a hot dog ($3 for a regular size.)  Even my usually-pescetarian-except-for-occasional-chicken-wing-binges co-worker couldn't resist.  The "Here's Frosty" painted on the side of the truck kind of makes me want to see Jack Nicholson come bursting out of the window holding an ice cream cone.
Joy, Julia, and some random dude raid the frostymobile.
We found a nice spot right by the water - most of the benches were already occupied.  1pm on a day like today is a pretty busy time in the Garden.  Aside from a creepy guy staring at us for awhile and some low-flying birds, lunch was very pleasant.
Super excited about my hot dog. Yes, it's plain. Ketchup, mustard, and relish are nasty.
We thought about riding the Swan Boats, but alas, the lines were long, and we have a textbook to finish.  Maybe next time!
Swan boat! It's really spring now.
