The iconic Los Angeles hot dog stand Tail O’ the Pup announced last year that it would bring its signature weiners to Ratkovich’s Bloc development. But instead of opening in the project this year, the 18-foot hot-dog-shaped stand, made of concrete, will be retiring.

It will be preserved at the San Fernando Valley Relics Museum as an exhibit later this month, joining artifacts from Henry’s Tacos and Pioneer Chicken.

Jay Miller, the grandson of the cart’s owner Eddie Blake, along with his wife Nicole, teamed up with the owners of restaurant chain Killer Shrimp last year with plans to launch future locations, Los Angeles Magazine reported. Its unclear whether that plan has been entirely scrapped, but Valley Relics founder Tommy Gelinas confirmed the vintage hot dog stand itself will no longer be part of it.

“The owners felt like the Valley Relics Museum was the go-to place for preserving that kind of stuff,” Gelinas told L.A. Mag. “I said yes to the donation.”

The hot-dog shaped stand opened in 1946 and originally stood on the Northwest corner of La Cienega and Beverly Boulevards but moved in 1985 to a new location on San Vicente Boulevard. It was placed into storage in 2005. [LAM]Subrina Hudson
