I had my first Top Dog in 19721, and have had a few since. The 'chain' (never more than four outlets in Berkeley at one time, I don't think) was a pioneer in offering its customers half a dozen or more interesting sausage types, including many, like linguica, that were unfamiliar back in the day (bockwurst? what's a bockwurst?). Just as crucially, this location, and another on the other side of campus, are still wallpapered with libertarian/anarchist screeds and cartoons from the '60s, the vintage clips and typescripts slightly yellower than when, during the first Nixon administration, I first scanned them while waiting for my order to come up (they grill to order here), but still intact and ponderable, mounted to the walls as they are with sturdy, American-made vintage scotch tape.
