This is where Yann’s Hot Dogs used to be, on Brockway, just over the Walnut Street bridge in a little block of buildings that also houses apartments and Custom Upholstering and Interior. It’s a quiet little bar now and I don’t drink, so I’ve never been in there, but I remember Yann’s.
The hot dogs there were delicious and not served with nearly the sort of aggression that Fairmont’s Yann’s is famous for. I remember eating lunches there of four hot dogs there with two canned Dr. Peppers. I always had my hot dogs with onions, ketchup, and the hottest chili. Not technically a proper West Virginia hot dog, but I didn’t/don’t really care.
Not only do I know little about the bar there now - Pregamer’s Pub? - but I struggle to imagine there being one worth going to. That place was so small; maybe they’ve hollowed out the back of the building a bit? Maybe not. And maybe, if I try hard enough, I can imagine the appeal of a tiny neighborhood bar. Such places are genuinely rare in Morgantown these days.
