Frankenart Mart's Free Hot Dogs Mark 5 Years of, Well, Free Hot Dogs

Posted By on Thu, Mar 31, 2011 at 2:58 PM


Anniversary Hot Dog Day

Where: Frankenart Mart, 515 Balboa (at Sixth Ave.), 221-2394

When: Sun., April 3, 1-6 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: It's difficult to put your finger on what's going on over at Frankenart Mart in the Inner Richmond. For five years now, this almost-a-gallery-but-not-quite has been doling out free hot dogs with a side of abstraction. Sunday's event won't be that different than the typical monthly free-for-all, with the addition of a dancing, prancing plush hot dog and a 4 p.m. hava negila. The Mart also operates on rotating themes, and right now it's Library. This means they're lending out a mishmash of things, including human beings: "Check out a baby, a graphic designer, a farmer: who knows?" reads the website. So head out to the Inner Richmond for free beef or veggie dogs, and ponder the strange and beautiful city that has kept an ethereal hot dog gallery open for five years.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
