“Can I share with you my worldview? All of humankind has one thing in common: the sandwich. I believe that all anyone really wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich.”
—Tina Fey, 30 Rock
If you share Liz Lemon’s sandwich philosophy, next week is shaping up to be the best thing since sliced bread. GOOD Magazine is hosting its official Sandwich Week, which runs Sept. 26-Sept. 30.
And to celebrate, GOOD will throw together another map: the United States of GOOD Sandwiches. For those of you who still remember the disgrace that GOOD poured on Idaho when it gave us a question mark on its United States of GOOD Beer map, now’s your chance to redeem the Gem State's good name.
GOOD is taking reader sandwich submissions from all 50 states. Here’s the criteria:
What is a GOOD sandwich? We’re not just looking for the tastiest sammy to originate from your state (although we do accept samples). We’re not necessarily seeking the most famous, either (Kentucky may be spared the Double Down). We’re on the lookout for GOOD sammies—sandwiches with historical or cultural significance in your home state, ones that can be assembled from local ingredients, and ones that support local independent businesses. The ideal GOOD sandwich will do all three.
