Mid-week musings

- You see it all in San Francisco. Spotted today--a panhandler with sign "Money needed for alcohol research."

- Pink's, the noted hot-dog eatery in Hollywood, is set to open a location at Los Angeles International Airport. A line is constantly in place at Pink's sole location on LaBrea, often with celebrities waiting patiently amongst the commoners. (The current menu features dogs named after Martha Stewart, Rosie O'Donnell and Ozzy Osbourne.) The news makes me want to fly to LAX just to get a hot dog!

- It's been a tough tour physically for Aerosmith. The latest news is that bassist Tom Hamilton will miss an unspecified number of dates due to recent, "noninvasive" surgery, according to a tour report. Prior to Hamilton, guitarist Brad Whitford had to sit out a month of shows after injuring his head exiting his Ferrari. And, in June, Steven Tyler suffered a leg injury which caused several gigs to be postponed. Here's hoping the band is healed by the time they reach Kansas City and the Sprint Center on September 1.
