This week: Say goodbye to an old friend, enjoy incredibly well priced Sunday Suppers and a stimulus inspired wine dinner, go burrito mad—and speaking of mad (take it any way you want), check out Charlie Sheen’s winner hot dog.

Charlie Sheen’s twitters  packed in business at The Infield in Sherman Oaks when he tweeted “Get’m while they’re hot..!” accompanied by a photo of the Charlie Dog daily deal on the chalkboard.  Sheen created the Charlie Dog — a Chicago-style hot dog with mustard, green relish, onions, tomatoes,  peppers, celery salt and a kosher pickle— all topped by Sriracha hot chili sauce which Sheen calls his “tiger’s blood.”  The dog is $5.  Not interested in a Charlie Dog? How about a Fried Twinkie Dog? Check out the small baseball inspired stand at Ventura and Beverly Glen on Sundays and Tuesdays for $2.50 hot dogs (up from the previous $2 special) on most hot dogs all day (the Charlie Dog will be $4). Or Mondays for $1 Dodger Dogs.  The Infield is owned by actor Robert Davitian (best known as the producer in Borat). 14333 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks (818) 501-1850
