Fred's Franks, Wakefield-shut down?

A previous post from about 2 weeks ago (I forgot to copy the URL to paste below but a search should find it easily) gave me the heads-up about this guy and I promptly went and had an awesome dog. Today I drove by and didn't see him. His Web site (link below) said that as of May 29, the state and local police asked him to leave.

When I got my hot dog, I asked him the logistics about setting up what's basically a few coolers of food, a charcoal grill, and a picnic table of condiments on ice. He said that he didn't have to get a permit from the town of Wakefield because the land he was on is state land. When I asked about health codes, he said that even though he didn't have to (which I was a little alarmed by) get inspected by the health officer or whatever the title is, he did anyway just to play it safe and was given a green light.

Before I try posting on his site directly, I'm wondering if any hounds know what happened. I was just getting ready for a summertime of hot dog lunches.
