Street strategy: Island businessman Allen Flores confirms he and business partner Bebob Neumann plan to open Playground Patio Bar, 2325 Strand, in the space previously occupied by Portside Bar & Clothing.

Playground Patio Bar will specialize in unique hot dogs, known as “street dogs,” among other fun foods, Flores said. The concept, from the team behind Shark Shack, a burger, seafood and drinks concept at 2402 Strand downtown, will focus on a relationship with delivery services to make street dogs and other “messy foods,” available across the island.
