Take a deep breath - you can do this. By “this,” we mean brave the anarchic apocalypse that is Capitol Hill after midnight. It’s worth it for Monster Dogs, a hot dog cart that sets up shop right outside of Neumos and always draws a massive crowd. Weave your way through all the people, hop over that guy who just face-planted on the crosswalk, and get yourself a Polish link Seattle dog with cream cheese, jalapeño, and grilled onions on a toasted bun. Seattleites, this is your badge of honor.
