First look: Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs
After getting derailed by a rogue electrician, Biker Jim wasn't sure that he'd be open by the first home game of the Colorado Rockies, but after years of hustling wieners from a cartel of downtown carts, he unlocked the doors to his brick-and-mortar, a long labor of love -- and a lifelong dream -- two nights ago, unleashing sausages in a million different manifestations on friends and family.
And they came. And they ate. And they gushed. And Jim, who had originally hoped to open in the fall of last year, couldn't stop beaming. "This is, like, the coolest thing ever," he said, while hopping from table to table last night reuniting with old friends and making plenty of new ones. "Since we're now street food under glass, our new motto is off the streets and into your mouth, and by the looks of things, people are eating it up."
After a VIP party tonight, Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs opens to the public tomorrow at the stroke of 10:30 a.m. -- and he'll stay open till 3:30 a.m.
In the meantime, we were there last night to partake in the wiener romp, and, obviously, we brought back a stash of food porn to make you salivate.
