Bark Hot Dogs to Close on Sunday

Some sad news for all lovers of gourmet hot dogs: Bark, which opened on the quaint stretch Bergen Street between Fifth and Flatbush Avenues in 2009, will be closing after service on Sunday night. Here's the notice that owner Josh Sharkey posted to the front door (click to enlarge):

Bark opened to much acclaim in 2009, serving custom-made hot dogs from an upstate German sausage maker and toppings made from locally-sourced and high-end ingredients. It seemed to be a perfect fit for the "real food" movement that's still going strong, by elevating an inexpensive fast food to gourmet heights. Other menu items included wings, fast food-style burgers, shakes, and onion rings, and the source of every ingredient was listed on their website.

But high-quality ingredients are expensive, as is average rent, and something went wrong somewhere along the way. While there always seemed to be plenty of people inside (they also did a brisk delivery business), a second location that opened last year on Bleecker Street closed after just six months and must have cost the company a fortune. Sharkey told Eater that "there are many reasons" for the closure.

Some may argue that the hot dogs there were too expensive, others that they're too unhealthy, but the fact remains that Bark happened to serve some of the best hot dogs in the country, and it's going to be missed.

If you drop by before Sunday night, you'll be able to buy condiments and hot dogs (per pound) for five dollars.

Poland's parliament has withdrawn proposed legislation that would have imposed a near-total ban on abortion in the country.Members of parliament in the lower house, the Sejm, voted overwhelmingly against the controversial bill by 352 votes to 58, with 18 abstentions.
