Pink’s Now Open at Knott’s California Marketplace!

In case you have been living in a cave or under a rock or something, Pink’s is now open at the Knott’s California Marketplace (just outside the front gate of Knott’s Berry Farm). Finally OC gets to taste the legendary hotdogery without having to travel to Hollywood. Hooray! Wieners for all!

What you’re looking at is a super-colossal-giant Jalapeño dog with chili and mustard or as I like to call it: Delicious Death in a Bun! The menu here is smaller than the original but the food is just as delicious. See, this way you can have fried chicken at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant for lunch and have this as a light snack later! Ha!

Pink’s OC is located at 8039 Beach Boulevard, Buena Park, CA

Old Towne Orange Tree Lighting And Candlelight Procession

Tree lighting kicks off holiday season - slideshowThat’s right kids.  It’s that time of year again.  Time to put on your winter outfit (which this year may just consist of a long sleeve t-shirt) and venture out to the Orange Circle for the annual Tree Lighting and Candlelight Procession.  It takes place this Sunday December 6th.  It starts at 3:30pm and goes until about 7pm.  There are booths with hot chocolate, sweets and goodies set up for you to peruse and enjoy, but it really gets good just after dark (5:30-6ish??).  That’s when the singing starts and the story of Christmas is told.  If you have kids, this is great for them, but my wife and I love it even though we don’t have kids.

It’s because of occasions like this that I really love Old Towne Orange.  When I attend these events, I forget that I’m deep in the middle of a big Southern California city.  I feel like I’ve been transported to a small town in middle America.
