Eat a Hoagie Day

It’s Eat a Hoagie Day! The hoagie, also known as a sub or grinder, is a sandwich whose name originated in the city of Philadelphia. One story claims that the Italian immigrants who worked at a shipyard called Hog Island during World War I would bring giant sandwiches for lunch. The workers were nicknamed "hoggies" so eventually the name was associated with the large sandwiches but the spelling evolved over time. There are several other stories, but they all give credit to Philly for the hoagie name.

So what's for lunch today? We think it's a great day to eat a hoagie!
