It may be well known as a bar and music venue, but Soundpony also has developed a name for its free hot dogs before 9 p.m. every day during happy hour. After 9 p.m., hot dogs cost $2, but co-owner Josh Gifford insists that because they are cooked on a rotisserie, the longer they cook, the better. Soundpony also offers veggie dogs upon request, and all dogs come with relish, ketchup, mustard and mayo.
Hours: 3 p.m.-2 a.m., Monday-Saturday; 5 p.m.-2 a.m., Sunday. 409 N. Main St., 582-7669
