Look, I’ve been feeling like shit all week, but I don’t want to deprive you completely of my witty repartee. So I’ll give you wonderful Readers a tip of the most important kind: THIS SANDWICH. It is the BEST SANDWICH. At least in my opinion. I’m a simple sandwich kind of gal, after all. Some people like their pastrami kind of sandwich, or their meatball kind of sandwich, me? I like my salami sandwich. The guy over at the Italian Importing Co. talked me into getting it “Italian style” (with oil and vinegar) one time instead of with mayo and I never looked back. That was about sixteen years ago. Back when the old dude rang you up at the counter and slipped the little ones bubble gum behind their parent’s back.
Anyway, I was in last week and I got all nostalgic about the joint. Started thinking about the good old days about when we lived in the neighborhood, when the boys were little, when I bought wine there. It’s such a great little spot. I just can’t bear the thought of it not being there for at least thirty more years.
Go on over there and find your own favorite sandwich, why don’t ya?
