Show Dogs Open Today

The new, upscale hot dog joint from Foreign Cinema owners Gayle Pirie and John Clark opens today on Market Street, in a part of town you once might have walked swiftly through with your eyes pointed down. Right next door to Secrets Adult Superstore, you can now find Show Dogs, a dog-and-beer palace sporting links from all the top local producers (4505 Meats, Let’s Be Frank, Golden Gate Meat Company, Fatted Calf), and ten local beers on tap. According to Urban Daddy, the seating consists of 200-year-old church pews, which makes sense, as a great hot dog can be a religious experience. The new place goes into the space once occupied by Opis, whose outdoor seating never really caught on. There’s just something about the middle part of Market Street that makes you want to go inside. But maybe not anymore. [Via Urban Daddy]
