For the first time in 78 years, a landmark Hollywood hot dog stand is changing its colors, in honor of the Los Angeles Dodgers clinching the pennant, a co-owner said Sunday.

Pink’s Hot Dog stand has adopted Dodger blue uniforms, umbrellas, walls and floors, and has changed the famous storefront banner.

Although the team is not selling Dodger Dogs — a trademark owned by a different sausage purveyor — they are selling “Blue Hots.”

What’s that? A hot dog wrapped in bacon, nestled in cheese and drenched in chili. That epicurean monument to Los Angeles goes for $4.88, over $2 in savings, according to the store.
