Your cool parent cred will skyrocket after you surprise the children with a trip to the Weiner ‘s Circle. The cash only, hole-in-the-wall joint serves some of the city’s finest dogs (bright green relish, cucumbers, tomatoes, mustard and no ketchup), not to mention the meanest cheese fries west of Lake Michigan. The best part about it is that the ladies who serve you are paid to actually give you a hard time. See if your children can outwit the ladies. When the weather’s nice, you can all sit on a picnic bench together and watch the people and traffic of North Clark Street go by.
