I get it, no one goes to Red Rocks to eat hot dogs, but according to a new report a TON of people eat them when they’re at the famous venue, so I am here to say something about their poor quality! 

According to Billboard, a total of 1.4 million people attended 174 shows at the Colorado amphitheatre between Nov. 1, 2022 and Sept. 30, 2023, that makes it among the top five most visited venues in the world. The Denver Post also reported that 65,000 hot dogs were sold in this time, making it the most popular food at the venue… 

But have you ever had a hot dog there? They aren’t good. Not only are they sub-par, but they are pricey! People travel from all ends of the earth to come visit Red Rocks, and I personally think they deserve better! As I mentioned when I started this rant, I get that no one goes for the hot dogs, but imagine how much better the overall experience would be if they got great views, great music, AND GREAT HOT DOGS! 

Should we start a petition?
