National Sandwich Day Brings THG Out of Self-Imposed Exile!

It wasn't until the other day, when somebody mentioned the paucity of posts at THG lately, that I took a look to see when my last post... holy shittake! August 1?!

Well, unlike previous years when long breaks were for something boring like work, this year's self-imposed exile can at least partially be blamed on publishing a magazine. Just not the one you were hoping I'd say.

Yes, sister publication Exploitation Retrospect issue 53 (!) debuted this fall and I've been busy promoting that, filling orders, co-hosting a mangled media podcast and doing all that goes along with being a self-publishing mogul. In addition to my 9-to-5 (or more like 5-to-2) job and Ryan wrangling, of course.

But anyway, when Friend of THG Dara Bunjon of Dara Does It (which is a food marketing and pr biz, get your head out of the gutter) mentioned that today was National Sandwich Day, well, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to list – in no particular order – The Hungover Gourmet's Top 10 Sandwiches.
  1. Roast Pork with Provolone and Sauteed Greens (from Dinic's in Reading Terminal Market)
  2. Egg Salad
  3. Cold Meatloaf
  4. Reuben
  5. Monte Cristo
  6. Bologna
  7. Tuna
  8. Roast Beef (Hot or Cold)
