And then there were none! Pink’s Hot Dog’s, the venerable Los Angeles institution since 1939 is THE FINAL ZAGAT MEAL.  The Monster has done it.  He has eaten at every single restaurant listed in the 2011 Los Angeles Zagat Guide and in doing so becomes the first person ever to accomplish such a feat!  Fourteen years, two thousand plus restaurants later and The Monster is finished.

The Monster wishes to thank Pink’s Hot Dogs and specifically Gloria Pink for the generosity in hosting this event and their contribution to cancer research; Tim and Nina Zagat for their support and their charitable gift to cancer research and their team including Merrill Shindler editor of the LA Zagat Guide who had The Monster on his radio program Saturday evening on 790 KABC-AM (podcast coming!) and Tiffany Herklotz who sent a package of great Zagat items including a wonderful Zagat chef’s jacket; the fifty friends and well wishers who made it out Saturday night to help raise money for cancer research and eat some delicious hot dogs!  With donations still coming in The Monster will have a final tally by the end of the week but he thanks you all for your generous spirit.  So what’s next?
