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.

  1. 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.

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

        1. 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.

            1. re: newhound

              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:
