If all goes according to plan, I will be in LA for one Saturday in March (work related travel, spare day). I'll be downtown and will need either to walk, use a city bike or take whatever public transit there is. What should I do? What should I eat? Should I buy things, and if so, what? [more inside]
We have next Monday and Tuesday free for our anniversary and are looking for a last-minute overnight outing in or near Seattle (less than 1 hour or so away). Ideally the trip includes at least some of the following: great food including a possibly slightly fancy dinner, a swanky or at least interesting place to stay, water views, bookstores, light to moderate outdoorsiness, strange museums or art, low-key adventure. It need not include Hallmark-card-style "romance." It MUST include at least one really kickass sandwich. [more inside]

I'm going snowboarding and want to bring sandwiches with me on the slopes! Typical. Caveat: must be vegan, and must appeal to non-vegans. I'm also not a fan of sweet sandwiches, like PB&J. Suggestions? [more inside]
My partner and I were remembering our differing childhood experiences of homemade spaghetti. At one point, she brought up using the leftovers in a spaghetti sandwich. I've never had one, but this triggered a vivid memory of a favorite picture book which had at least one illustration of a spaghetti sandwich. Among other odd sandwiches, possibly. I'd love to remember the title of the book and, ideally, see that illustration. [more inside]
Subway puts such a comically small amount of black olives on their sandwiches and salads (even if you ask for extra, or "a bunch"), and so consistently, that it could only be due to a policy of the chain borne of some solid business reason. But I can't imagine what that would be. The obvious possibility is that black olives cost more than the other toppings, but I think they'd have to cost WAY more to justify this, and in my experience black olives don't cost a whole lot. Thoughts?

Sometime last fall, I found a site that had a cute t-shirt that I wanted to buy my brother-in-law. It was from a woman artist (pretty sure), had a cartoony picture of hamburgers or regular old sandwiches, and said something like "I'm a couple sandwiches short of a pile of sandwiches." I bet it was this very site that took me there. I think the artist also drew cute cartoony bunnies, but that may be totally wrong. Google shows me a couple instances of that phrase, but no clothing. Do you know where I can find this clever shirt?
When I eat a sandwich, I tend to grasp it with my fingers underneath and thumb on top, and then I flip it around and eat it with my thumbs on bottom, thus eating the upside down (or far side first). Am I the only person who does this?
