The anticipated hot dog restaurant/bar at 7817 E. 37th St. North (316-425-5730) will officially open on Saturday.
1. It's all things to all dog fans: The restaurant describes itself as a "casual-dining-meets-late-night-fun-so-hang-around-for-breakfast" sort of place. It'll serve breakfast items in the morning, dogs all day and then stay open late for beer and wine fans. Hours will be 6:30 a.m. to midnight Sundays through Thursdays and 6:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
2. Dog diversity: The restaurant will specialize in quarter-pound hot dogs topped with gourmet ingredients such as wasabi mustard, red pepper and pineapple relish and kimchi.
3. Also on the menu: The restaurant also offers topped tater tots, a large lineup of gourmet salads, a variety of scrambled egg bowls in the morning, and a large selection of imported beers and some wines.

A GOOD DEAL
Starbucks is trying to get customers in a summer state of mind with a promotion offering half-price Frappuccino drinks from 3 to 5 p.m. now through Sunday.
Local Facebook Chick-fil-A crusaders are celebrating the news that Wichita is in line to get several free-standing Chick-fil-A restaurants. The first is likely to go in at Central and Rock, though the company has not yet confirmed that. Wichita now has just one Chick-fil-A in the Rhatigan Student Center at Wichita State University. The popular fast-food restaurant specializes in chicken sandwiches and waffle fries.
The return of Bangkok
The popular Thai restaurant at 2020 S. Rock Road closed last year, disappointing its following. But a new owner — the same people responsible for Taste of Thai at 447 N. St. Francis — is taking the restaurant over and using the same menu and the same recipes as the former owner. It should open in the next couple of weeks.
