Papoo’s The Hot Dog Show, a legendary hot dog stand in Toluca Lake, closes at the end of August. Buried a few items down on Burbank and Beyond is the full story of the closing of this landmark. For those who live near Los Angeles that have not tried Papoo’s, well, now is your only chance. Not only known for its classic hot dog, it was also one of the shooting locations for the original Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.
Flickr has some wonderful photos of this Burbank landmark.
I know I will certainly be making one last trek to enjoy the 50’s retro goodness of The Hot Dog Show.
