In our tiny corner of the world, it’s loud and overwhelming…

Each day begins the same: a shotgun start of disorder and routine pandemonium. At the spiteful hands of blistering hot coffee, we’ve become accustomed to scorching our overworked gums in the hopes of actually coming to life and being productive. Just once—we’re convinced—if we catch our bus on time, the day will breeze by as delightful as fresh white sheets on a clothesline. Today is the day that deadlines will meet their match! Never before has this world known tenacity and vigor like it will see in me!

D's Six Pax & DogzEven still, there will be puddles to avoid and raindrops to dodge; tiny, little specs of this big blue earth that demand our full attention. To speak, we’ve realized, is to scream our lungs out, however barbaric it might seem. Before long, with our own grip slipping, we do what any self-respecting person of legal consumption age would do: we look ourselves in the mirror, and noticing far more imperfections than we’ve signed off on, we concede. It’s time for a beer.

So here at D’s, we’ve turned it all off—or at least metaphorically we have. The deadlines, the agendas, the fire-breathing bosses…they’re all unplugged. The tables have been wiped; the chairs are stacked like neat, 1950s-era Catholic schoolboys; a list of available draft beers is almost never more than an arm’s length away. We keep the lights dim and the grill hot. The only stirring, you’ll notice, comes from the enthusiastic clamor of our jangly kitchen staff, manufacturing the very best hot dogs in this esteemed City of Champions.

Occasionally, we know you won’t be able to join us. There will be weddings, golf outings, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka; spelling bees in Ohio, bullfights in San Juan. Life beckons sometimes, and we’re okay with that. So to help make those times a bit more tolerable, we’ve resolved to start blogging. It’s the most efficient way to stay in touch with you—and for you to stay in touch with us—while you’re out living your big, epic life, dominating the world in front of you and leaving a wake of destruction behind you. We want to be there every step of the way.

Here, you’ll find ruminations about nothing specific and at the same time, everything. Familiar with our own tendencies by now, we suspect the bulk of this estate to file under Beer and Hot Dogs. It’s what we’re most passionate about around these parts; it’s what we know. In this world chock-full of five-gallon buckets, it isn’t whether or not you fill yours; it’s what you fill yours with that counts.

Still, there will be other things to noodle over: events, special promotions, breaking news; fashion trends, music, sports. Things like that. We hope you’ll check us out on Facebook, too, and we promise not to lead you into oncoming traffic if you follow us on Twitter.

True, we’re not TMZ, but we get the sense we’ll take over the world someday—it’s more of a hunch than anything, really. Until then, we’ll keep the beer on ice and hope you’ll pull up a chair to join us—sit backwards if you’d prefer, what do we care? If the world never ends up being ours, at least we’ll have your company and your conversation. And to us, that’ll do just fine.

Euro Trip

I’d walk into D’s Six Pax & Dogz and feel like I was in a European pub again
Whirl Magazine

General Manager Rena Agostinone pouring a cold beerThe best trips are the ones you take in your own mind on lazy summer nights…to Portugal or Bulgaria…or anywhere in Europe, really…to hunt down a hot dog and, maybe, a few good beers. Sometimes though — according to the kind souls at Whirl—Europe comes to you instead.
