$11 Wagyu Beef Hot Dog at Charlie Palmer's Anyone?

Ah, Charlie Palmer, how do you do it? While we're all knee-deep in the stink, you forge onward. I suppose there are still rich people around, and they've gotta eat somewhere. And for those of them who watch football, I suppose $11 is nothing to pony up for a hot dog come SuperBowl Sunday.

More specifically, it's Charlie Palmer's Wagyu hot dog. Wagyu, if you don't know, is the American cousin of Japanese Kobe beef.

Think about it.

A Kobe beef hot dog.

Insane if we weren't in a recession; comically hysterical while we're in one.

But you know what? I'd pay $11 for it, if only to have the story to tell that I ate an $11 hot dog. Plus, I hear that it comes with chips. And not just Lays.

If you think the concept of the wiener is crazy, these chips are downright certifiable. The PR person who e-mailed described them as "house made roasted chicken flavor potato chips which he fries in chicken fat, fresh rosemary, garlic and a touch ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) for sourness".
