East Side King's newest trailer opens officially today at Cheer Up Charlies, and they've got a new trick up their sleeves: hot dogs. In addition to their take on Japan-style hot dogs, the trailer will serve a Thai fried fish sandwich and po' boys. The trailer's hours will be 5 p.m. to 1:45 a.m. seven days a week.
Cheer Up's also recently welcomed back beloved vegan comfort food trailer Arlo's, whose hours are currently 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Earlier this year, East Side King opened Thai Kun at Wonderland. Wonderland's East 6th location was previously home to Cheer Up Charlies until the beloved queer-friendly club lost their lease and relocated to Red River.
