Last Minute Plans: The Wiener's Circle Reality Show Viewing At Liar's Club

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 20, 2012 2:30PM


When we first heard TruTV had created a reality show based on Lincoln Park hot dog stand Wiener's Circle, we had a lot of questions. First one — Really?! Second — How in the hell do you air anything spoken in there? Apparently they've turned it into something of a game with "outrageously irreverent and hilariously embarrassing challenges, with free hot dogs, burgers and fries as a prize."

Well, who doesn't want to watch someone humiliate themselves for a free hot dog?

Ok. We're curious, and we bet you are, too. That's why Do312 and Chicagoist would like to invite you to watch the premiere of the show with us at the Liar's Club tonight. The Wiener's Circle airs at 9 p.m. Join us at 8:30 p.m. to grab a drink and settle in for the show.

UPDATE (5 p.m.): TruTV posted a video clip from the show. We've embedded it below, and it looks, um, interesting.

Liar's Club, 1665 W. Fullerton Ave., "The Wiener's Circle" airs at 9 p.m., RSVP with Do312, invite your friends on Facebook, Free, 21+
