The recently opened Dog Haus Biergarten in Pasadena is already practically giving away its food — for 49 minutes at a time.

If you manage to get down to Old Town Pasadena between 11:11 a.m. and 12 p.m. or 11:11 p.m. and 12 a.m. on this blessed 11/11/11, they'll be selling pints of beer, cans of beer, wine, fries, tater tots, sliders and dogs for one dollar each. Sounds like a promising power lunch (or late-night treat).

Dog Haus Biergarten is not to be confused with the newest member of the Dog Haus family, Dog Haus To Go, which opened yesterday, just around the corner from Dog Haus Biergarten on 93 E. Green Street. Dog Haus To Go specializes in gourmet take-out and is a faster alternative to the original restaurant and the Biergarten. The only drawback? They don't serve beer to-go.

The original Dog Haus restaurant opened in Pasadena last year. Each Dog Haus offers an abundance of gourmet hot dogs, sausages and signature hamburgers. We like the Freiburger, a beef patty topped with fries, cole slaw, cheese, a fried egg then served on Hawaiian bread. Too bad it isn't sold for one dollar…
