Cafe Ground Zero: Serving up Nuked Food for over 50 Years


9/20/2006 - WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- The hot dog stand in the Pentagon's center courtyard, which long has been a source of Cold War intrigue, will be torn down in the coming months and replaced with a new eating facility.

"Rumor has it that during the Cold War the Russians never had any less than two missiles aimed at this hot dog stand," said Brett Eaton, an information and communications officer for Washington Headquarters Services. "They thought this was the Pentagon's most top secret meeting room, and the entire Pentagon was a large fortress built around this hot dog stand."

Reportedly, by using satellite imagery, the Soviets could see groups of U.S. military officers entering and exiting the hot dog stand at about the same time every day. They concluded that the stand was the entrance to an underground bunker.

That was truly the most strategic hot dog stand in history.

I never heard about it before.

Thanks AC

Talk about blind luck... It may not have been a bunker, but if hit at the right time, it still would've taken out all of those top-ranking officials! LOL!

The Soviet Union had their highest yield ICBMs targeted directly on most government buildings in DC. I doubt much would have survived if anything. I'm sure we have extremely deep bunkers in strategic areas but who wants to live underground for the next 30 years?

nanc..I wonder why hot dogs are no longer as popular with the Pentagon as they once were?

I recall eating there when I was in the navy, or walking outside with my buddies who smoked. They had good food there. It's a shame it's closing down.

The pentagon, or more specifically, TOPHAND/NMCC, was a sister command with the comm center at the navy yard over on the south end of DC. We used to go back and forth quite a bit to the Pentagon.

There is something missing at the Pentagon since 9/11.

I think it's my friends who were brutally murdered there.

Thanks for the complement Steve. I was never part of the Anti-Jihad International but I had another blog going before starting this one.
Needed a rest. After a while this topic (Islam/terrorism) gets very frustrating.

benning..I'm willing to bet the Pentagon was having a little laugh at the Soviet Union's expense.
Or maybe just bad Intell
