Mint Hill, NC Real Estate Agent and Home Stager: Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Wiener

Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Wiener

Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Wiener, ever since I visited uptown Charlotte, NC today and partook in Food Lion's Speed-street 2011, I cannot get that song out of my head.  Now for those of you who are not Nascar fan's this weekend is the Coca Cola 600 (for some people that's a national holiday).  Every year starting the Thursday before the race they close off several blocks of Uptown Charlotte for Speed-Street, which is a street fair featuring tons of food vendors, 3 stages with various live bands and numerous drivers and their sponsors signing autographs.

Weiner Mobile

Just in case you were wondering this puppy is street legal.


My son has been complaining that they are not doing anything in school since it is almost out for the summer so I picked him up right after lunch and we went to Trade and Tryon in Uptown Charlotte where all the action is.  This year is the 25th year Speed Street has come to uptown and the vendors and entertainment  are sure to appeal to just about everyone.  If you would like to visit Speed Street it runs through tomorrow night at 11pm, some of the entertainment scheduled is Josh Turner, Eddie Money,  and the Big Sam Band.


Greg Biffle

Luckily the weather has been fantastic and it only took about a 45 minute wait for my son to get Greg Biffle's autograph.



I was personally disappointed I did not get Speed or Mater's autograph.  At least I got to see the Wiener mobile.  Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Wiener.  If you would like more info about Speed Street you can visit their website at
