Four dogs has been my in-immediate-succession chow-down limitobut you will want to test yours at the wicked cheap and wicked meaty Gowanus Yacht Club. Proprietor Alan Hardingareferring to the Moby Dick

and Gilligan's Island

inspired decorasays his cozy Carroll Gardens outdoor joint has a "Captain Ahab mounts Ginger" vibe. Add a lot of grilled meat and $1 cans of Pabst to the equation, and you have an ideal evening! (Well, it doesn't have to be grilled meatathey serve veggie dogs, too.) Ten different kinds of hot dogs, Texas Chainsaw chili, sausage, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, Jever and "Duff" (like from The Simpsons) on draft, a retro collection of assorted canned beeroand nothing over $4. Seasonal, GYC's open from Memorial Day to Halloween (at which point there'll be a big-ass party to kiss the warm weather goodbye). Go splash pitchers on the sundry lobster pots and water skis decking the walls!
