Capital Region restaurants are offering great deals to help us celebrate National Sandwich Day on November 3!!

It all stated in the 18th century when the Earl of Sandwich, who liked his meals to go so he didn’t miss any gambling, was credited with creating what we now know as the sandwich.  He was famous for taking his dinner meat and putting it between two slices of bread.  Now, we have the sandwich!
