Renowned hot dog purveyor "Hot Dog Mike" Juiliano will break the world record for most expensive hot dog with his new invention: theONEdog: a quarter-pound premium all beef hot dog topped with lobster tail, saffron aioli and gold flakes.
TheONEdog will be sold for $1,501 to “The World’s Most Expensive Hot Dog Buyers,” or anyone willing to pay $1,501 and taste the collaboration of ground beef and gold flakes. Whether these wealthy risk-takers will be at the event is unknown. There will be up to six ONEdogs made at the event, which takes place at River Market Pavilions from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday.
Juiliano will donate $1,500 from the sale of each hot dog to The One, Inc., a homeless advocacy nonprofit. The proceeds will benefit local homeless outreach.
