Sausage and the City


By Justin Juul

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you ever actually pursued one of those weird ideas you get when you’re driving (or bussing or biking) home from work and your brain starts to wander? You know the shit I’m talking about. Something like this: Mmmm, I’m hungry -- a hot dog would be nice – they always smell so good – but there’s bacon in them dogs – I wonder how much money those bacon-dog cart people in the Mission make – I wish they sold veggie dogs – I wish I had a hot dog cart – I bet I could find one on Ebay – I could start my own veggie-dog cart and get rich peddling my stuff in the park.

Wonder no more!

Then someone cuts you off and you slam your brakes and forget about the whole thing. You start thinking about sex or iPhones or something important like that. We all have those ideas that we know would work, but that we don’t have the time, energy, or money to get around to. The truth is we’re just lazy. That idea --the one about the veggie dogs-- would totally work. Just think about how much money you’d make at Dolores Park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. All those stoned hipsters! All the drunk vegetarians! Who knows, after a month or so maybe you could make enough money to buy a cute little French bulldog to tag along as your mascot. You should do it! But you can’t --not anymore—because Danielle and Kristine, better known around these parts as Sausage Party, have already done it. And their dogs are fantastic.

Dog Eat Dog. Would the cute guy in this pic call Marke B. immediately.

Sausage Party serves Field Roast Brand Grain-Meat Sausages –some truly high-end shit—on seeded hoagies with the usual scoop of sautéed onions and peppers you get from the Bacon-Wrapped dudes in The Mission. But that’s not all. Sausage Party also offers a variety of condiments and sauces, a free bag of chips, napkins, water, and the chance to pet Nolie, the Sausage Party mascot, and the cutest little Frenchy you’ll ever meet.

Forget about burritos. Forget about pizza. And forget about The Tamale Lady (yeah I said it!). It’s time to join the Sausage Party.


You can find Sausage Party in and around Dolores Park on weekends and at special events, like Movie In The Park and Dyke March (!).
