Dog Haus to sell at all USC home games

first_imgFans at the season opener last week against Arkansas State might have noticed some competition for the traditional hot dog vendors outside the Coliseum. The Pasadena-based gourmet sausage chain Dog Haus will be serving hot dogs and sausages at all USC home games this season near Gate 16.“The group that basically owns the food stalls at the Coliseum … was looking for a new, fresh face, someone to come into the Coliseum, and they reached out to us about Dog Haus,” said Kristin Hansel, senior account executive of JS2 Communications, the firm that represents Dog Haus. “[With] them being Pasadena-based, franchising nationally at the moment and just with a signature item to sports games [like] hot dogs and sausages, it seemed like a great fit. They met and did a walk-through and basically with a two-day turnaround they were at the first game.”Dog Haus will be serving three signature dogs and sausages at the Coliseum. The “Long Snap Dog” with cheese sauce, bacon and green onions; the “Buffalo Soldier,” a chicken sausage with buffalo sauce, blue cheese and crumbled BBQ chips; and the “Thai Breaker,” a spicy Thai sausage with peanut sauce, crushed peanuts and toasted coconut. Side items include tater tots with optional toppings.“The items they are offering at the Coliseum are completely unique to that location; they are not served at any of the restaurants,” Hansel said. “Obviously, at all of their locations, they have it built around options, so theoretically they could be recreated. But, they are not menu items anywhere right now.”Originally from Pasadena, Dog Haus has now opened locations in six states -— Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, and Utah. Hansel said that Dog Haus will be opening a new eatery near USC, in the space previously occupied by Freebirds World Burrito.“Their timeline is that they’ll be open next month,” she said. “But we can’t narrow it down anymore than that.”Nadine Apilado contributed to this report.last_img read more

Gor’s Guikan okay after freak injury

first_imgSwift action from Tusker FC midfielder Hashim Ssempala prevented him from swallowing his tongue while Tusker FC team doctor Wycliffe Makanga, also the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) medical committee Secretary rushed to the pitch to stabilize him.“He is okay now. We had to take him to Kenyatta Hospital to see a specialist and read the scans through after leaving Machakos and the good news is that he is stable,” Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr said.Gor Mahia’s Ivorian forward Ephraim Guikan vies for the ball with Tusker FC’s Collins Shivachi during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on February 28, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluPlayers on the pitch frantically called for help when Guikan went down especially after he failed to make any movement after going down.He is expected to have the mandatory seven-day resting period recommended by FIFA’s medical committee after concussions and will be unavailable for Gor Mahia’s game against Bandari on Saturday.“For Esperance, we will wait. He has to go back to the doctor and get a go ahead to be back because that is a serious kind of situation,” Kerr added.While Guikan will be out, Kerr’s side is boosted with the return of Rwandese forward Jacques Tuyisenge who picked up an ankle injury in their match against Zoo Kericho. Tuyisenge will also be available for the CAF tie against Esperance after sorting his passport issues.Gor Mahia forward Ephraim Guikan reacts after a missed opportunity. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYA“He would have been part of the team on Wednesday but he hasn’t trained whole week as he was out in Rwanda sorting his passport issues. He should be available for Saturday against Bandari and the Esperance game as well,” the coach said.Kerr continues to lament that his side has been forced to constantly change the starting team especially having been faced with a fixture of four games within 11 days.“I don’t think there is a coach who changes the team as much as I have to do. Look at what has happened to Guikan, could happen to another top player on Saturday and I find myself in an awkward situation,” lamented the tactician.He will be hoping to use the Bandari match as a preparatory platform for the Esperance game on Wednesday at the same venue and has hinted he will use his strongest squad after using mostly fringe players for their last two KPL matches.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Guikan went for an aerial ball and had a mid-air collision with Tusker FC players, falling awkwardly on the ground with his tongue being trapped at the back of his mouth.Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 1- Gor Mahia’s Ivorian striker Ephraim Guikan is okay after a freak injury that saw him momentarily lose consciousness in the dying minutes of the side’s match against Tusker FC on Wednesday in Machakos.Guikan went for an aerial ball and had a mid-air collision with Tusker FC players, falling awkwardly on the ground with his tongue being trapped at the back of his mouth.last_img read more
