Bluemont Wienermobile Sighting, Explained

(Updated at 12:20 p.m.) Wondering what the famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was doing at the entrance to Bluemont Park on Tuesday?

So were we. Luckily, the team of “hotdoggers” who are driving the vehicular sausage all over the East Coast got in touch with us yesterday and were able to grill them on the purpose of their visit.

“Hi there, we saw your post on the Wienermobile today,” wrote ‘Turkey Dog Tyler‘ and ‘Bacon Lettuce and Taylor,’ via email. “Shoot us an email if you want to ketchup! Franks!”

We asked what they were up to over in Bluemont.

“We’re in Annapolis for a few days of events at grocery stores,” the pair said. “We were just in Arlington for the afternoon to do some disc golfing with a friend.”

There were hot dogs served to their fellow Frisbee golf players, right? Seems like that would be a perk of the job.

“Haha nope no hot dogs,” the hotdoggers replied. “Just a nice day of frolfing in the park.”

The Oscar Mayer ambassadors promised to let us know next time they were in town. Hopefully they’ll remember to steer clear of the Pentagon.

    So they were on the frisbee links then? Glad you could mustard a response from them.


    They get college degrees to ride around in that and wear ugly jackets? What ever happened to seeing Europe with a backpack. FREDTERP

    Lived on Manchester Street right next to Bluemont for 9-years.
    I used to spot the WienerMobile in the parking lot by the tennis courts at least 1-2 x’s a year.
    My guess is, the Wiener pilot knows someone who lives in the neighborhood and parks it nearby.

    Sounds like Bluemont Disc Park is on the hot list for the duo that gets the Mid-Atlantic gig every year.
