AEG Vs. Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog Vendors Tonight in Carson

Carson code enforcement officer Glenn Miller confiscates the food – but not the cart – of a bacon-wrapped hot dog vendor outside last weekend’s Chivas USA SuperLiga game. Authorities plan to crack down again tonight.

The tentacles of Los Angeles-based Anshutz Entertainment Group extend throughout not only Southern California pop culture and civic life, but around the globe to include such figures as dead pop icon Michael Jackson and nominal Galaxy midfielder David Beckham.

But AEG, always it seems unnecessarily heavy-handed given their increasingly powerful and visible corporate profile, are now going after bacon-wrapped hot dog vendors at tonight’s Gold Cup doubleheader at Home Depot Center.

It’s always more about money than astute public relations for AEG who should think about improving the quality of the food and service inside the stadium.

Even better: AEG should try legitimizing some of these carts by providing the required access to running water and restrooms and slapping on an extra 75 cent charge rather than give their (over) paying customers another reason to gripe about bad sports teams, price gouging and plastic public realms like L.A. Live.
