harvard square hot dog stand update?

Anyone see it today? Is it a cart, a real stand, near the T? I didn't see another possible location while scouting this weekend.

    The moderators have pulled the thread I started over the weekend-- looks like Dave and Wendy were posting themselves to answer questions-- with full disclosure.

    Anywho... I got there after Dave had closed up today, so I have no tasting to report but here's the deal: Pearl dogs, first steamed in apple juice and bay leaf, then grilled on a little propane unit. That's it for now, plus bottled water. 2.50 for a dog, 1.00 for water. Toppings include chopped vidalias, yellow mustard and regular ketchup, chipotle ketchup, a horseradish brown mustard, and couple of homemade relishes.

      Thanks, Newhound, especially for describing the all-important condiments.

        Cool. So is it a cart next to the newsstand? What's the location and hours?

          He's set up in "The Pit". with a big red umbrella that says Scup's Dogs. Don't know the hours yet.

        I spoke with him 7/16, he said he'd be back today. Can't wait!

          Does anyone recall the name of this place? I was surprised to see that thread pulled.

            It's called Scup's Dogs. I think the thread was pulled because the owners were posting with information to answer questions, and not aware that Chowhound frowns on that.

              Actually, Chowhound does allow owners to post factual info. You can take a look at our posting guidelines which give more info on what's allowed (and not) for insiders: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/367605
