Forget about eating pretzels to make yourself thirsty at happy hour. Durty Nellie's (3051 NE 32nd Ave., Fort Lauderdale, 954-563-3222) has found a way to sell even more two-for-one drink specials: It serves free hot dogs Monday to Friday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Actually, the place sets up a nice little buffet, including healthier pastas and salads, to nibble on while you imbibe. But it's hard to ignore the steaming dogs; that combo of nitrates and alcohol is tantalizing, even if it is a recipe for a hangover.
