Dog do-over

JJ's Red Hots tried a promotion at its Dilworth location for the opening of major league baseball on March 31 -- a $2 hot dog -- and when lots and lots of people wanted to take the restaurant up on the offer, things got a little messy. So the place is seeking to make amends: It sent out a post today saying "we just didn't deliver as planned" and "please forgive us" and (better, if you're into deals) that it will make the offer again, on April 14. Actually, it's making the deal bigger, by specifying that all its signature dogs (usually about $3.50 to $4) will be $2 on that day. 1514 East Blvd. and its Ballantyne location, too, at 15105 N.
