Free Hot Dogs and Chili from The Stand at Festival!


Free dogs and chili from The Stand (but no beer)!

Dog and chili lovers rejoice! The Stand is coming to Frugal Festival Food! in LA on June 25 and bringing FREE samples of its tasty hot dogs and chili. Yesssss!

This local LA chain is famous for their super frugal Monday $1 dog nights. Now that is a deal you can’t beat! Make sure to get a free Stand Card to get the $1 dogs and 5% off all purchases. The Stand now offers a la carte ordering, so you can get any entree, sides, or fries on its own.

The Stand has locations in Encino, Woodland Hills, Century City, and Westwood Village. I used to eat at The Stand all the time way back when I was a reporter at the LA Daily News. You can’t beat local, tasty, and cheap!

Who’s excited for all the free food at Frugal Festival? Yozen Frogurt will be passing out free samples and Albertsons has lots of fresh fruit to share. Plus there will be free water, lemonade, and otter pops!
