Papaya Dog to Hair Masks

Twitter tipster Sara Harvey, a Brooklyn resident, let me know that something horrifying happened to Papaya Dog on 6th Avenue in the Village.

It was turned into a pop-up for hair care products. Expensive hair care products.

Dogs and fries were rapidly replaced by honey-infused hair masks and texturizing wave sprays.

Yelp has it marked down as "closed."

But fear not. The pop-up was only temporary. I gave them a call tonight. They answered "Papaya Dog" and told me "We're back again."

Let this be a warning to us all.

This Papaya Dog has been under threat of closure, so it may be a matter of time before something like this becomes a permanent installation. Read more here about the last remaining dog-and-papaya shops in town (minus some since then) and why they remain as important as ever to many New Yorkers.
