National Sandwich Day eagle poster

Monday, Nov 3rd is National Sandwich Day. This day has not only existed since the beginning of mankind, but has been the catalyst for many events, from the gathering of loved ones for between-bread-meals to major territorial disputes. In honor of those who paid the price for our ability to eat sandwiches to this day, Jerry’s will be offering Buy One, Get One Half Off (of equal or lesser value, Dine in only). Customers must post on Facebook or a pic on Instagram with “I Love Sandwiches”, tag Jerry’s and show their server/bartender to get the discount. Hopefully our humble sandwiches can live up to the rich history of sandwiches that we all know and cherish.
Jerry’s Facebook is “Jerry’s – Wicker Park” or “Jerry’s – Andersonville”. Instagram is “jerryssandwiches”.
