Short of Memorial Day plans? Have a strange attraction to hot dog-shaped paraphernalia? Well, look no further.
The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the meat company's 27-foot-long mascot for all things hot dog, is spending Memorial Day weekend in the Twin Cities.
The company has announced its "Hotdogger Class 33" – which is one of six that traverses America at any given time – will be available for viewing and general hot dog shenanigans first in Chanhassen on Saturday and then Minneapolis on Sunday.
It'll be at Cars and Caves at the Chanhassen Autoplex (8150 Audubon Road) between 8 a.m. and noon Saturday.
Then, on Sunday, you can find it at Andy's Diner Uptown, 1500 West Lake Street, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Those in attendance will be able to get their hands on "small take-home goodies" including a famous Oscar Mayer Wiener Whistle, as well as the chance to take photos and "take a peak under the buns."
The Wienermobile has been a fixture since 1936, when Oscar Mayer's nephew "pitched the idea as a way to lift Americans’ spirits during a difficult time in our nation’s history," according to Oscar Mayer.
