1. The million dollar question: what’s your favorite sandwich?
Good question. I’ll let you know after #101.
2. Do you have a food background?
No, but I’ve been eating sandwiches since I was five. My best friend, John, is a chef at Franny’s, but I don’t think that counts either. They don’t sell sandwiches, but if you haven’t been to Franny’s, you’re missing out.
3. Are you fat?
No (not really).
4. Do you have too much time on your hands?
Actually, no. I’m swamped. Work is generally crazy. I’m a designer at charity: water. and work my ass off. I’m finishing up my Masters in Communications Design at Pratt Institute. I recently got married which required a lot more time than I expected and the wedding diet strongly conflicted with The Quest. Phish won’t stop touring. I still haven’t finished the first seasons of The Wire or Battlestar Galactica. The list goes on and on. Basically, I’m not quite sure why I’m doing this, while at the same time knowing exactly why I’m doing it.
5. Are you eating the sandwiches in any particular order?
No. The only thing I know is that #33 – the Smoked Salmon and Caviar Croque Monsieur will be my final conquest because I can’t justify spending $70 on a sandwich otherwise.
6. Do you have a deadline?
No. 101 sandwiches is a lot. I assume it will take me quite awhile.
7. Can you make any substitutions?
Not really. So far I’ve deviated from the original sandwich twice, both unintentionally. Ordering #16 – Connecticut Style Lobster Roll I mistakenly went for Maine style with mayo, instead of the Connecticut style with butter because that is what the man serving the rolls told was the winning sandwich. Trust me, I will happily go back and try the other one, but first I have a lot of other sandwiches to eat. I also ordered pork instead of beef for #99 – Sesame Pancake With Beef. Again, don’t sweat it. I’ll be back.
If you have any more questions, please let me know!
