Location: Madison Square Park (Flatiron)
Event: Guinness World Records attempt for tallest sandwich
Food: Salami sandwich
I ate a sandwich every day for the first 18 years of my life and I consider it a tragedy that I've missed a few days since then. When I heard a local deli was vying for the Guinness World Record for tallest sandwich it felt like the bat mitzvah I never had come to life. Better yet—the thing they chose to sandwich was salami, which is perhaps the king of deli meats. The record setting sandwich they made was actually a lot smaller than what I imagined so I think I have a shot at dethroning them next year.
