Nobody’s doing well during these hard economic times, and that includes Gray’s Papaya.

Starting this week, their famous “recession special” which includes 2 hot dogs and a drink will be sold for $4.45. In the past several years, the price of the “recession special” has gone up 3 times! This totally sucks because I consider hot dogs to be a cheap meal and paying anything near $5, even for 2 hot dogs and a drink, is not something I’d necessarily call cheap.

They need to change the name of the “recession special” to plain old “2 hotdogs and a drink”.
