Stand Up Franks Is Now...FRANKLESS!

I was driving by the old Stand Up Franks the other day--the notorious booze hole trouble spot which I never had a chance to frequent before it was lost to the ages--when I noticed something had changed...
The "Stand Up Franks" sign was gone. Yes, the establishment had been de-frank-ified.
Rumor is the place will be closed for a while so all the old customer base goes away, then when it opens there will be a whole new theme to bring in a whole new crowd. Somebody in the Hawthorne Neighborhood Association put it this way: if they reopen too soon, they'll have the same crowd of chronic inebriates. The only thing that will change is the drunks will be drinking out of tiki cups.
I wonder what they did with the old sign?
