As our regular customers have no doubt noticed, for a number of years we have had no #4 sandwich. We used to. But it has been so long since we have had it that I can’t remember what it was. All I can recall is that is wasn’t a good seller so we 86’ed it.
Just recently though my wife Carolyn was commenting that we really should have a BLT on the lunch menu because whenever we feature it as a special it does well. So here was an opportunity to bring back the #4. But what to name it? For that answer we must go back to 1991 or so when I was working at Shakespeare & Co. on the upper west side of Manhattan. A fellow employee (who happened to be a fellow Buckeye such as myself) gave me a galley of a book to come out called Snow Crash. I read it and was enthralled. To this day I still have that beaten up copy and whenever I can’t decide on what to read next I pick it up and settle in. Hiro’s arrival on the sandwich board will mark our second dystopian character in the current sandwich line up.
Welcome Hiro. I am pleased to have you on the board.
