Farewell Favorites: Pon & Hom's Hot Dog Stand

Pon & Hom's was a favorite in Golden Gate Park for 24 years before its owners closed the hot dog stand on Halloween, 2004. By the time of the closing, construction of the new De Young Museum, California Academy of Sciences, and Music Concourse parking garage had made a ruin out of what was Pon & Hom's plum location behind the band shell. Owners Cary Fong and Eugene Pon thanked their customers by providing free hot dogs from the stand during its final weekend.
