The Hawt Dog & Sausage Eatery originally opened in Cherry Creek North in January 2012. Its claim to fame was an elaborate take on a traditionally uninteresting tubular food (hot dogs and sausages), but that wasn't enough to keep the place open. It closed last November.
But last month there were signs of life on its Facebook page, and the restaurant just came back to life.
On May 13, the Hawt Dog's Facebook page lit up with a changed status: "We will be coming back! We are going to be better than ever!" The restaurant spent the next few weeks revamping its already creative menu, and reopened its doors this week at 3030 East Second Avenue.
