I cannot remember when we started going to Deli Day. But in the beginning, it was always Tom Ford, Cameron Faucette, Peter Cranton, Tom McCafferty, Mike Haskey and me. Bill Rich hangs out with us, but he's always busy and has rarely made an appearance. Then Tom McCafferty moved to Los Angeles, followed by Tom Ford a few years later. Peter moved to Atlanta. Cameron moved to Raleigh and came back. Mike got married and really doesn't hang out with us any more.
I remember one year, Tom got a dessert that he wasn't exactly crazy about. He wanted a taste of Cameron's. She threatened to put a plastic fork through his hand if he didn't back off. Cameron and I kept send Mike for tea, which got him his nickname of "Tea Boy."
The past few years, I've gone to Temple Israel, 1617 Wildwood Ave., early in the morning and helped the ladies make the sandwiches.
I'm guessing they don't need my help this year. I haven't received an e-mail from anyone.
I'm going, just to eat, this year. And boy, is it yummy!
For $10, you get a Kosher corned beef sandwich, coleslaw, potato chips and a pickle. Sweet or unsweet tea is also part of the ticket price.
And did I mention desserts?
These are the best desserts in town. I'm serious.
Diets go out the window this time of year. In fact, I don't even think about dieting on Deli Day.
Desserts are $4 each or three for $10. Guess which one I'm getting?
Deli Day is 11 a.m.-2 p.m. today.
