sammich in love

Some people miss lost loves; some people miss dead pets. I miss sandwiches.

A lot of things happened in Vegas over the weekend, but the thing I keep thinking about the most is the caesar salad sandwich I had at the food court at Caesar’s (of course) Palace. The bun alone was worth the trip. I lament the lack of a similar bun option at my current lunch locations. I don’t even know what the heck you CALL that kind of bun so I could look for it.

Thinking about that sandwich  made me think about another sandwich I used to get in St. Louis – and this one, I’ll never have again because apparently the place is closed. I can’t even remember the name of the place. Maybe it had an X in it? or a Z? Anyway they had this delicious garlicy-cheesy-beefy monster of a sandwich and it was delicious.

RIP, good sandwich.

Meanwhile I’m stuck with either shitty Jimmy John’s, even shittier and overpriced Sopraffina, and the crappy cafe in the lobby. Life is so unfair.

    I miss sandwiches from the restaurant I used to work out. They were amazing.

    I how you had an amazing time in Vegas and you got to debut your shiny-cuffed shirt for everyone to see. haha

    When I lived in suburbia, there was a bar I’d frequent that had bbq pulled pork on pretzel bread, and it was pretty much the best thing ever and now that bar is closed. Boo-urns.

    Have you tried Hannah’s Bretzel?

    I had a great sandwich about a week ago (and good sandwiches are hard to come by for me now that I’m a vegetarian). Mmm… Might have to go back to that place.

    D’s comment just made me crack up. Now that’s pretty brilliant. I can commiserate with you, because I too had a spectacular sammie whilst extremely intoxicated last summer at 3 am in the Mirage.

    I’m still insanely jealous that you were just in Vegas.

    Sammiches are well and good…but nothing makes you want to strip naked and run through a rainstorm of condiments praising Beefus, the god of sammiches than this: http://mydrunkfriendandme.blogspot.com/2008/05/there-is-god.html

    The turkey dinner at the Caesar’s food court was pretty redonk, too.

    where was the STL sammich place? I lived there for two excruciatingly long years after you left, I bet I could figure it out…

    It was next to Crazy Bowl on that street west of campus that was residential and then hit some shops, towards like Clayton. Right around where they were doing the overpass work at the end of 1L year.
