Hot diggity dog day

linkhausdogDo you realize that at this very moment you have LESS THAN 24 HOURS to prepare for National Hot Dog Day?

Don’t panic. There’s still time to map out a strategy for tomorrow. I have a few suggestions for how you might choose to celebrate the frankest of holidays

You could go to Linkhaus, the new hot dog restaurant and bar at 7817 E. 37th St. N. They’ll have hot dogs on special all day — $1 for regular dogs and $2 for quarter-pounders.

You also could visit Dog House Carryout, a little to-go hot dog place at 707 N. Mount Carmel, that’s getting a lot of buzz from local wiener aficionados who seem to especially like its Cincinnati dog.

There’s also Let’s Be Frank Get Franked And The Wiener Is, a restaurant that’s undergone more name and location changes than can be counted in the time we have here. It’s now open at 2322 E. Douglas, selling all the dogs that made it famous.

Or you could participate in one of my favorite hot dog traditions — driving into the nearest Sonic and demanding a chili cheese dog with all the fixins.

Any other dog suggestions out there?

And the wiener is…

The former Get Franked (which was the former Let’s Be Frank) has yet another new name — And the Wiener Is — and a new location. It opened a week ago at 2322 E. Douglas, less than a block west of and across the street from its original Douglas location.

Top dog Brad Standing has added several new dogs to the menu board, and the new place has seating for around 35, which is more than the previous location.

andtheweineris.jpg 007Let’s Be Frank was a pioneer in the recent rash of hot dog restaurants in Wichita and has had landlord and copyright issues during its first year of business, necessitating its location and name changes.

He’ll be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. Fridays, and from noon to 4 a.m. Saturdays.

A valid question

Why ask why?

Why ask why?

Linkhaus is a new hot dog restaurant at 7817 E. 37th St. N., and it clearly has a sense of humor. This is one of the restaurant’s new billboards, which you can see in person at 37th and Oliver (near Koch).
