While I cannot wholeheartedly endorse competition when it comes to food, North Side Sandwich Week is a f.u.n.d.r.a.i.s.e.r. For kids. And porn has become an accepted word to describe nearly anything now. Ask any kid.
It’s a North Side sammich smackdown!
Starting Friday, sammies from 13 neighborhood eateries will vie for lunchers’ and diners’ attentions during North Side Sandwich Week.
The second-annual promotion lets customers vote with their wallets at the individual establishments June 17-23, and vote for their favorite sandwiches online.
But on June 20, sponsoring Northside Leadership Conference (the group writes the neighborhood name as one word) holds the North Side Sandwich Sampler, an event at which attendees can taste all the sandwiches for a good cause.
That happens from 6 to 9 p.m. that Thursday at the Allegheny Elks Lodge No. 339. For $25, you get to sample each of the sandwiches, wash them down with two Penn Brewery beers (or soft drinks) plus dessert, and then you get to vote for your favorite sandwich.
Proceeds benefit the Rox Performance Academy.
