Today is National Hot Dog day. And in honor of this momentous occasion, Oscar Mayer announced it is offering up its Wienermobile on Airbnb. The 27-foot-long vehicle will be available in Chicago for three nights, starting Aug. 1, for $136 per night. The timing coincides with the Lollapalooza music festival. The price? That’s a nod to the number of years Oscar Mayer has been in business. Guests can enjoy food from the vehicle’s mini fridge, which will be packed with Oscar Mayer hot dogs and fixings. They’ll also get plenty of hot dog-themed items to take home. Oscar Mayer and Airbnb are also donating $5,000 to Rise Against Hunger. In other Hot Dog Day news, Char-Broil also posted what it says is the world’s longest hot dog on Instagram.
