Let’s hope the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has a better time in the valley this week than when it visited in February — and its catalytic converter was reportedly stolen. In case you or your children are fans of oversized sausage-shaped vehicles, it will be at Smith stores in Henderson and Las Vegas today through Saturday. [KLAS, Oscar Mayer]

Next Tuesday’s opening of Zippy’s, the lauded Hawaiian food chain — this is its first location outside the islands — is likely to be a frenzy, complete with parking overflow and the need for patience. If you plan to attend the opening, near Rainbow and the 215, well, Zippy’s has a few rules. [Review-Journal, Zippy’s]
