The Comet smells like hot dog water

So I forgot to mention in my post about the Poseur show that the Comet Tavern smells like hot dog water. I haven't seen a show there since the hot dog stand set up shop outside. It was hot inside and the windows to the outside were letting in much needed air. But the air smelled like hot dog water and cream cheese. It coated me like an alien invader trying to take over the human race by osmosis. I thought I might need to take a shower when I got home. I was worried it might not ever come off, like the episode of "Seinfeld" when the car smells and they can't clean it. In a way I felt it was very punk rock, like the Lake Union Pub's floor that was so sticky with beer and sweat that my shoe almost came off playing a show years ago. In the end it just smelled weird and made me not want to play the Comet.

That place has always smelled, although I never noticed hot dogs and cream cheese. I have always known it as the Vomit.
