If you weren’t lucky enough to snag a hotel room in Santa Clara, Calif. for Super Bowl weekend, we’ve got some good news. Oscar Mayer is auctioning off a giant hot dog RV for you and your friends to crash in.

The “Wienie-Bago” has enough room to sleep four people and comes fully loaded with snacks, drinks and of course, Oscar Mayer food so you can live the life in hot dog heaven. Oh, and you get a personal chauffeur to drive you around so your hands will be free for all that eating.

The highest bidder will get to cruise around the Bay Area in style in the accompanying Wienermobile—and it’s all for a good cause. Proceeds from the winning bid will benefit Stop Hunger Now, with the company matching the bid up to $10,000.

The two-night stay also includes a $2,500 stipend and full amenities like cable—in case you didn’t actually get your hands on tickets to see the big game and are just there for the tailgate fun.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I do trust all of the concepts you’ve offered in your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. May you please extend them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
