The chili cheese dog at Crafty Dogs, on the other hand, can be made with real cheddar (although goop is available). The chili might come from a can, or maybe they make it at the commissary here. Knowing the answer doesn’t change the way it tastes, but that’s not the point.The point is this: The chili cheese Angel Dog at the Crafty Dogs concession is the best-tasting hot dog at either ballpark.So there you have it.Related Articles Japanese food at the small Sushi Nakata in Monrovia is big on taste Both parks offer a chili cheese version.

You’ll find the steamed Dodger Dogs everywhere you look, but the grilled Dodger Dogs are available only at select concessions, which are clearly marked.The grilled Dodger Dogs have far more flavor, a better texture and, based on my random samplings, haven’t been sitting around suffocating in their wrappers as long. Either way, you’re going to have to dress it yourself, and your choices for toppings are limited to bright yellow mustard, florescent sweet pickle relish, weirdly pulverized onions and ketchup, all of which you must manage yourself, probably with just one hand.It’s a similar story at Angels Stadium, where the basic Angel Dog is steamed. There is, however, one concession where the wieners are grilled. That’s the Crafty Dogs concession on the ground level near section 127.This is where you can build your own Angels Dog, starting with a wiener hot off the grill (technically it’s a griddle at either ballpark). The best part is you don’t have to do any of the work, and you don’t have to settle for florescent toppings. Your hot dog comes off the other end of a friendly assembly line ready for its perfect Instagram moment. This is also the one stand that will construct a chili cheese dog.

Ballpark hot dogs don’t aspire to greatness. Their only aspiration is to taste like hot dogs, something to be enjoyed equally by kids and adults.There’s honestly not much difference between the basic wieners or the buns at the two parks.

The devil is in the detail: small-scale sexual segregation despite large-scale spatial overlap in the wandering albatross
Sexual segregation in foraging habitat occurs in many marine predators and is usually attributed to competitive exclusion, different parental roles of each sex or niche specialisation associated with sexual size dimorphism. However, relatively few studies have attempted to understand the patterns and underlying drivers of local-scale sexual segregation in marine predators. We studied habitat use, diet and feeding ecology of female and male wandering albatrosses Diomedea exulans, fitted with GPS and stomach-temperature loggers during the chick-rearing period (austral winter) at South Georgia in 2009. During this period, when oceanographic conditions were anomalous and prey availability was low in waters near the breeding colony, the tracked wandering albatrosses showed high consistency in their foraging areas at a large spatial scale, and both males and females targeted sub-Antarctic and subtropical waters. Despite consistency in large-scale habitat use, males and females showed different foraging behaviours in response to oceanographic conditions at a smaller scale. Males appeared to be more opportunistic, scavenging for offal or non-target fish discarded by fishing vessels in less productive, oceanic waters. They exhibited sinuous movements, feeding mostly on large prey and consuming similar amounts of food during the outbound and return parts of the foraging trip. In contrast, females targeted natural productivity hotspots, and fed on a wide variety of fish and cephalopods. They commuted directly to these areas; most prey were ingested on the outbound part of the trip, and they often started their return after ingesting large prey at the farthest point from the colony. Together, these results indicate that sexual segregation in core foraging areas of wandering albatrosses is driven by sex-specific habitat selection due to the low availability of prey in local Antarctic waters. This segregation results in different feeding behaviour at local scales which may be explained by differing breeding roles and degree of parental investment by each sex, with females investing more than males in reproduction. Further investigations are necessary to confirm the existence of this pattern through time under contrasting environmental conditions and to identify the drivers responsible for local-scale sexual segregation in wandering albatrosses.
