franktuaryBy the week's end, expect the debut of Franktuary in Lawrenceville, the second location for the hot-dog destination and bar at 3810 Butler St.

Fliers that read "Prepare Ye For The Second Coming" have teased the opening of the 2100 square-foot restaurant.

The space that will accommodate nearly 100 patrons is outfitted with garage doors for open-air seating when weather permits. 

Franktuary has seen steady growth since Tim Tobitsch and Megan Lindsey opened in 2004 in Trinity Cathedral Downtown.  

The restaurant also is part of the first wave of the area's food trucks, having rolled out their mobile kitchen in 2010. 

With a menu of all-beef dogs and wursts dressed in dozens of condiment combinations, Franktuary donates a percentage of profits to local and national charities.
