The history of sandwiches is laced with vice, ingenuity, and industry.
Sarah will relate this sordid tale via the PB&J, perhaps the sandwich Americans feel the most passionate about. But jelly wasn't always thought to be peanut butter's natural companion and at MSG you'll get to experience long-forgotten peanut butter sandwiches of the past.
Later, Soma will take us on a tour of America's best sandwiches, from national standbys like the BLT to regional treasures like the Po' Boy. He'll go to bat for the grilled cheese as the greatest sandwich of all time, and use the power of experimentation to uncover the Perfect Grilled Cheese.
During Storytime, former-Sandwich-Artist Soma will spill the beans on Subway's secrets, because we know you've always wondered what exactly that "Subway smell" is. Afterward, they'll put on their brave faces while tasting the most bizarre and innovative sandwich combinations history has to offer.
