- Hot Dog Mike will create the world’s most expensive hot dog (not pictured) on Friday to benefit The One, Inc.
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.
