Curl and Kornelis here, warming it up at Showbox SODO for the hottest ticket in town tonight, Mr. Obama. It's going to be awhile before he starts, so we thought we'd give those of you not willing to cough up $100 a peak at hubbub surrounding the Democratic frontrunner in Iowa.
Our friend Joe, with Joe's Grilled Gourmet Dogs has been serving dogs in front of Qwest since it was the Kingdome. He told me this evening that he's never sold as many veggie dogs as the day Obama appeared at Qwest's Event Center last summer. That's right, Obama moves more veggie dogs that the Rolling Stones, Kenny Chesney, and Shawn Alexander. Speaking of dogs, Ms. Curl and I may or may not have been drinking at Hooverville across the street before we got in. Either way, their special of the day was "Barack's Favorite Chili Dog."
