CLUSTER of TV news crews and reporters interview, from left in pink: Beverly Pink Wolfe, Richard Pink, and Gloria Pink at the famous hot dog stand’s socially-distanced reopening.

The unprecedented, five-month closure at Pink’s Hot Dogs has ended! Since mid-August, fans of the 80-year-old hot dog stand at La Brea and Melrose have — once again — been able to line up for their favorite chili dogs, hamburgers and fries.

But the queuing is a bit different now. The ground is marked with circles every six feet, and hungry patrons must maintain social distancing and wear masks. Pink’s is following all the county protocols for its staff and customers.

But, when you think about it, 10 people — each standing six feet apart in a line — move just about as quickly as 10 people standing right next to each other in a line!

On the Aug. 12 re-opening day, proprietors Richard Pink his wife, Gloria, and his sister, Beverly Pink Wolfe, were there to greet a cluster of TV news crews and other reporters plus a multitude of happy, returning customers. The demand was such that the hot dog stand needed to extend its planned coronavirus-era operating hours so closing time is now 10 p.m. on Sun. to Thurs. and 11 p.m. on Sat. and Sun.

CIRCLES are placed every six feet to keep customers safe.
