LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On the eve of the National League Championship Series starting back on October 15th, two iconic hot dog stands, Pink's Hot Dogs of Los Angeles and Wiener's Circle of Chicago, laid down a heavy wager that showed their passion for their home town teams.
If Cubs win the series, Pink's Hot Dogs would buy Wiener's Circle Chicago Dogs for their first 108 customers on the same day as Game #1 of the World Series and would also donate $1,908 to Wiener's Circle's favorite charity of the Cubs manager, Joe Maddon. 108 is the number of years since the Cubs won the World Series and 1908 represents the last year the Cubs won the World Series.
If the Dodgers won the playoffs, then Wiener's Circle was to buy a Chili Cheese Dog for Pink's customers for one hour and also would donate to Pink's chosen charity 100% of two hours of sales at Wiener's Circle.
We all know the result and Pink's is paying off, but with a broken heart, since they love the Dodgers.
Upon defeat, Pink's tweeted -
"A #21BunSalute 2 @TheWienerCircle & @cubs 4 being #NLChampions!
Now, go & represent the #NL in the #WorldSeries @CubsJoeMadd #WFlag
Cubs fans, start lining up today at Wiener's Circle on N. Clark Street at 10:30am, the first day of the 2016 World Series Game, for your Chicago Dog compliments of Pink's Hot Dogs. In addition, Pink's will be donating $1908 to Joe Maddon's Respect 90 Foundation.
Pink's latest tweet:
