The Darwin sandwich contest begins today. (Even though many of you have already began to submit some really amazing ideas-some of which are already being deemed "winners!") Here we go officially:
We are looking for new sandwich ideas in order to celebrate our 100th sandwich creation. (This menu features #93/#94). By the time we hit #100, we'll also be celebrating our 4 year anniversary, and we'll celebrate in a big way. So, if you've been cooking something up in your brain, tested it on the stove at home, seen it on a cooking show or magazine, or just want to see your ideas come to life on our board this contest is for you:
Three things to remember when you are going through the DARWIN creative process:
#1 It's something that can be mass produced (We've had some great ideas fall by the wayside, because they are too time consuming or can only be made several at a time...we sell an average of forty of each of our dishes on any given day).
#2 Something that travels well (Can be wrapped, transported and will taste just as good an hour later)
#3 Something that will hold after being cooked (no cream sauces, soft cheeses, etc.)
If your idea is amazing, if we haven't done a version of it already, and you meet the three criteria, send us your idea (e-mail, fax, "written" over the counter). We will pick one for the 100th sandwich creation and that winner will win a week of free lunches, dinner for two at Riley's & a gift certificate to SHIFTY's pub on Burnett. If that winner isn't you, don't despair...From there, as we move forward, if we ever end up using your sandwich ideas in the future, you'll be immortalized on our board, and earn yourself a week of free lunches on Dave & I (and as always, our undying love & affection). :) Look forward to more of your amazing ideas and seeing each and every one of you at the counter soon. Happy Spring!!!
Make sure to sign up for our weekly E-mail/Fax List when you are in the shop.
And, stay tuned as we continue to bring classic dishes from around the country right here to the backyard of Syracuse.
And, as always... we look forward to seeing you at the counter...
