Trivia
In the opening scene at Wrigley Field, Jon Favreau makes a reference to going to "Wiener Circle" to have hot dogs after the game. Wiener Circle is a hot dog stand famous for the staff yelling and cursing at you when you order. If you do not return the favor, they do not take your order. Generally, though, this only happens late at night on the weekends.
