Want to see what a Fifty Dollar sandwich looks like?
Nice little tease, huh? Well here it is:
It's a wonderful little Italian Sub with Capocolla, provlone, lettuce. tomato, jalapeno, with an oil and vinegar dressing, on a toasted roll. So how did this become a Fifty Dollar Sandwich? Well it started with a phone call from the Missus; "Hey, I'm in Little Italy, want me to pick-up that Spicy Capocolla sandwich from Grab n' Go?" She had immediately gone for "the juggler" here, knowing fully well that one of my biggest weaknesses are Italian Sandwiches. So of course I "went for it". A few minutes later my phone rings and I make my way to the curb, and am handed my sandwich, nice and warm. As I grab my sandwich, a hand goes out....
"You forgot the delivery charge."
"Yes, how much money do you have?"
I dig into my pocket; "About fifty"
"Well, turn it in, I've got to go shopping!"
There's always a catch. So the Missus turned a $5.69 investment into a fifty dollar return. I think I'll turn over our investment portfolio to her.
Grab n Go subs is a local chain with several locations. I've only been to the cute, quaint, Little Italy location and the staid Murphy Canyon strip mall location. The specialty here are toasted Italian Subs all priced at $5.69, except for the GRAB & GO ®, a mortadella, salami sub priced at $3.99. These are usually prepared ahead and you can just grab one and go, the others are prepared to order. My favorites are the Spicy Capocolla, and the ITALIAN VILLAGE SPECIAL ®($5.69):
Guess I have a "thing" about toasted Italian Subs. Not sure if I'd want to spend another Fifty on one though!
