Hot dog pop-up about-town Prairie Dogs has launched a Kickstarter to help fund a potential permanent location in Uptown. According to the Kickstarter page, co-owners Tobie Nidetz and Craig Johnson are "currently in negotiations" for a space on Lake Street, with the plans for the proposed space available on the Kickstarter page, as well. The restaurant would be open for lunch, dinner, and late night, with delivery by car and bicycle and some sausages available to buy and cook at home.
The Kickstarter currently has 6 backers and $155 pledged of a $30,000 goal. Pledge amounts range from $10 to $3,000, with rewards including invites to the opening, previews of sausages in development, and a day trailing Johnson as he makes sausages. They will continue running pop-ups during the Kickstarter campaign, with the next one scheduled for February 20th at Linden Hills' Zumbro Cafe, starting at 4 p.m.
