Graffeati: New Year Requests

Happy New Year, EatStreeters! We are back with 2014’s first installment of Graffeati. I’ve decided to spice things up this week with some stock photos. Without further ado, let’s see some comments!

Here’s a request from Rob in Milwaukee:


I cannot fathom eating a plain hot dog, and that’s coming from someone who eats multiple every week. Growing up near Chicago I am faithful to the classic Chicago style dog with mustard, onions, tomatoes, sport peppers, celery salt, etc. This just goes to show: different strokes for different folks. Who am I to judge a plain hot dog eater?

Our second entry this week was extremely excited for his soft drinks. Eric in Lawrence:


Any time a word is pluralized with a “Z” instead of an “S,” you know someone is serious.  If I were filling this order, I’d provide at least a ten-fold increase in straws vs. the norm. You just don’t take any chances when the letter “Z” is being thrown around.

Our last entry this week is from Carl in Raleigh:


I have no way of knowing if a poem was actually written, so I decided to try my hand at it:

Switzerland is cold

Come to the midwest today

I bet it’s colder

And that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed my haiku. Stay warm, everyone!
