The Weiner Circle - Chicago hot dogs

A clip from This American Life showcasing The Weiner Circle.

I've eaten here. It's the bomb Chicago eats at 3am. Actually delicious. Serious fun. I was hungry that one night, told everyone I needed some foods and was asked to be very polite when we got to the hot dog stand. I was told I had to have a Chicago hot dog before leaving. It's like Philly's cheesesteak or New York's pizza, or Miami's I dunno...

Anyway, it's fucked up. People pushing the envelope. Really destroying the workers verbally. This is accepted. This is the way. It has increased the joint's sales. The workers are good sports anyway and the patrons tip well. I recommend the visit.
