Final Dog Days: Downtown Franktuary to Close Next Week

Posted By on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 at 1:12 PM

Downtown hot-doggery Franktuary (ne Hot Dogma), on Oliver Avenue, is closing up shop next week. The last day to get locally sourced and creatively dressed hot dogs is Wed., July 23. That's also National Hot Dog Day, so that's at least two reasons to stop by for a wiener or two.
Franktuary will continue to sell hot dogs, poutine and more at its newer Butler Street location in Lawrenceville.
The collective hive mind that is City Paper has many warm memories of Franktuary — from the "zombie" dog topped with "brains" to the venue's big-screen debut in The Dark Knight Rises. And who can forget Franktuary's foray into the contentious 2008 Democratic primary when the Barackwurst went bun-to-bun with the Hillbasa?
