Today (November 3, 2009) is National Sandwich Day.
And while the author of the above mentioned article on National Sandwich Day proclaims that he would "walk a mile in the rain for a good pastrami sandwich," the truth is that we all eat sandwiches in order to give us energy to do whatever it is that we want to do. Walk. Run. Work. Live. Play. Whatever.
We live at a time and in a place where most of us are lucky enough to be able to choose more than a hamburger or fast food fries when we are out and about trying to get it all done all in a day's work. We have smoked turkey, veggie supreme, hummus wraps and teriyaki chicken to choose from; lots of healthy options to help fuel our fires.
And while Jimmy Johns was recently in the Chicago news for attempting to force a poor bastard to eat a tuna over a turkey tom, I still think JJ has some of the the best grub around town. For the love of pete, even Jessica Simpson knows the difference between tuna and turkey.
If you are a sandwich eater (and who is not among us?) make sure to check out Lemondrop.com and vote for your best sandwich. It's also a little bit fun to see what else is out there.
Speaking of something else out there...has anyone tried Jason's Deli or The Spicy Pickle?
