Brian was pretty relentless about me never having tried corned beef. Not only had I not had corned beef and cabbage, but I also had never had a Reuben sandwich. The corned beef wasn't something I looked at and thought, "I need to eat that." Also, the Reuben sandwich has three of four things on it that I absolutely dislike. Well, that all changed on St. Patrick's Day.
