The fifth annual sandwich week includes at least 14 Northside restaurants.

They call it: “Episode Five: The Pastrami Fights Back.”

A highlight of the 10-day “week” is a “sandwich sampler” at the Grand Hall at the Priory. For $40, you get to sample sandwiches from each of the participants, and they’ll throw in a couple of craft beers.

Mark Fatla, executive director of the Northside Leadership Conference, says he’s led all five sandwich weeks.

“It’s helping to share with everybody what we Northsiders already know. There’s a lot of wonderful things here. Great food, great beverages, great people,” he says.

The mayor chows down on a braunschweiger sandwich, and Darlene Harris enjoys ham salad.
