A new hot dog shop with an unusual twist has opened inside Scoopy Doo Gelato in Five Points.
Scoopy Doo owner Sean McCrossin has opened Evil Weiner, featuring hot dog toppings honoring female horror film protagonists. Customers can choose beef, chicken chipotle, veggie or Italian sausage Evil Dogs and gussy them up Sissy Spacek-style, with Evil Toppings of roasted tomatoes and a Frito crunch, or go the head-spinning Linda Blair route, which includes a house-made chipotle barbecue sauce with pulled pork.
Spacek starred as the psychically gifted but bullied main character of Stephen King’s Carrie, while Blair inhabited the memorable role of Reagan in The Exorcist.
Other topping options include Neve Campbell, heroine of the Scream franchise; Sigourney Weaver, everyone’s favorite alien slayer; and Halloween scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis.
Evil Weiner, located at 725 Saluda Ave., is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m.
