urgents Speed's question

  • d

I know this is a strange chowhound post but here goes...I was thinking of filming Speed's Hot Dog stand for a video project I am doing. Does anyone know if he is there on mondays? or how to get there? or whether this would make an interesting subject for a short little video piece (under 4 minutes)? Is he a cool guy?
any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Definitely a good idea. he is a cool guy, over 80, and has lots of stories to tell. But he is not there on Monday and is somewhat sporacic on other days. He is there from about 11 to whenever the dogs run out. He is in Newmarket Square, which is off of Mass Ave heading towards Dorchester. Head east, past Boston City Hospital, past the entrance to I-93, left toward Southhampton St, then a quick right into Newmarket Sq. Have a hot dog while you are there.

      thanks Chuck,
      is it possible to get there via public transportation? I'd be coming from Cambridge...
      thanks so much,

        Not sure. The #1 bus goes down Mass Ave but then turns to Dudley, I'm not sure where it turns, but it is about a 10-15 minute walk from Boston City Hospital.
