Hot Doug's Re-opens Tuesday

Evan B. Druce | Jan 2, 200501:59 AM

I, for one, welcome our new encased-meat overlords.

This could quite possibly go down among the greatest news stories of the year, and it's barely 24 hours old:

Just don't all come at once, okay?

I've finally gotten through the entire DVD set of "Elimidate" episodes, so
I guess it's time to cook some sausage (that's not prison lingo). Hot
Doug's opens for business on Tuesday, January 4, at 10:30 am. We'll still
be closing at 4:00 pm, so you can stop the
how-come-you-don't-stay-open-later whining now.

Our new locale: 3324 N. CALIFORNIA AVENUE, right at the corner of
California and Roscoe. We're a half mile west of the old location, just
across the river in the vibrant Avondale neighborhood. There's plenty of
street parking and more seating.

On a sincere note, I can't tell you how touched and flattered I am with
all of your support and encouragement over these past eight months. You
made the motivation to re-open the restaurant easy to come by. I genuinely
thank you for your reassurance and look forward to serving you some tasty
encased meats this year and for a long time to come.

See you soon.
