Your favorite phallic-shaped vehicle is in St. Louis! One of the six Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles rolled into town this weekend and is making a stop at Schnucks Des Peres (12332 Manchester Road; 314-965-3094). The six Wienermobiles are competing against each other in a cross-country trek.

The Wienermobile stopping in St. Louis is called "Born to Bun" (we swear), and the people driving it are called hotdoggers. Can we get that job? The hotdoggers will be at Schnucks from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, playing games, handing out prizes, and, we can only hope, free hot dogs. Born to Bun is currently in the lead -- check them out and submit hot-dog-related challenges for the hotdoggers to do here.
