Many bars and restaurants are open late into the night, but around midnight, something else joins the village—hot dog stands.
For some students, getting a hot dog during their night out is a tradition. With more stands popping up, students have more choices for their late-night snack.
The oldest of these stands is Carter’s Nearly World Famous Hot Dogs, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary in The Village.
Although there are new hot dog stands popping up in the area, owner Mark Carter said he hasn’t noticed and doesn’t seem to think there is any competition.
Carter said a dream inspired him to first open his hot dog stand.
