Wiener takes all: How one Nashville hot-dog stand is rethinking live music during lockdown

“I probably smoked one too many jays one night and looked at that storage container and said, ‘Dude, we should do a concert on top of that,'” Porter tells. “Me and my business partner looked at each other and went, ‘Can we pull a show like this off?’ I started calling around, chatting with some of the artists that I knew, and everyone was itching to play. From there, I talked to the city and got their thumbs-up. It happened so quickly.

Porter says he worked closely with Nashville Mayor John Cooper’s COVID-19 Task Force, who “approved and vetted” the event. While the tickets were free, hopeful attendees had to gain a parking spot in a lottery. According to an email sent to winners, Daddy’s Dogs said it was “taking all necessary social-distance precautions to make sure this event is safe and fun for everyone.”

He breaks down the protocols: “We built the system with the task force, and they gave us a lot of guidance. Folks will stay in their cars and listen to the radio, and if they need to get up to go to the restroom, that’ll be the only reason for any interaction. When they get here, we’ll give them a menu and a rundown of the night, and when they’re parked, we’ll have waiters roll up to their window, take their orders, and bring it straight to them,” Porter says.
