When I was an undergraduate at the University of Delaware, my classmates would rave about the opportunities to eat a sub from Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, the first of which was established in Wilmington, DE, in 1976.
Now it seems the shop has swept the country with a surprising fervor.
And DC got its first Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop (1800 M St. NW, DC) on Nov. 21, 2013. Vice President Joe Biden, ardent supporter of all things Delaware, was in line to get a sandwich that day.
DC’s Capriotti’s will celebrate its first anniversary this Friday, Nov. 21. Starting at 11am, the shop will give a free Bobbie sandwich to the first 50 people in line.
The Bobbie, hailed by Capriotti’s as “Thanksgiving on a roll,” comes with house-roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayo.
You couldn’t blame Biden if he showed up again!
