Out of the Blue

Not sure, but I think we're going to end up at a Brooklyn deli at some point today for some pastrami. I hope it works out, as it's been too long, and pastrami withdrawal is not a pretty sight.

What are the odds that the deli you (the general you) go to in New York makes its own Pastrami?

I would suspect now that most places just purchase their Pastrami from some distributor; and there is nothing special about most of Pastrami in New York delis.

I'll ask the next time I'm there. I'm guessing you're wrong, but I can't say for sure.
Think we used to have one here called Manny Hattan's but it closed. There's just too much of a barbeque culture here, not sure there are any spare briskets.

Did Youtube get attacked, it's been down for more than an hour?
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

I hope I am! Trying local varieties of stuff is just awesome. Variety is king.

I am sure there has to be some that make their own, and some that do the whole distributor thing.

You should indulge and visit as many delis as you can, and get their pastrami and ask them and compare, etc! See, research is cool!

THanks to Jimnms, keep an eye here https://twitter.com/duvalmagic for Borderlands 2 codes. One just expired for 1 gold key. There was 2 rounds of key codes today, and he is planning more through the weekend, testing the SHIFT system.
There was a code on the 26th that gave away 5 gold keys.
good luck!
Another one just hit. good luck!
Goddammit. That's twice now I've missed by like a half hour...

I have jimnms to thank. I was going to bed when he sent it over, and when I got up, I just made it into the 2nd one. I was at work all night, glad I didn't miss this one - waiting for the Sunday one.

Yeah something about a tub of cream cheese spread across a mountain fatty meat high in cholesterol just says unhealthy to me. I understand the point your making about food though. But when another choice may be turkey and mustard, pastrami and cream cheese is the unhealthier of the two, no?


Cholesterol. You need it to live. Eating cholesterol is good for your health! Eating too much is bad.

And no, just because it has less fat and calories does not make the turkey and mustard more healthier. It just means you can eat more of it to get the same calorie intake; that is all.



Of course, this is assuming one or the other is not poisoned, or contains some toxic substance, etc.

Every now and then I go to a deli around here and order what is probably the least healthy sandwich on the menu...
The New York New York: A giant grilled pastrami, chive cream cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mayo on focaccia.

It's heavenly.

There is nothing unhealthy about that.

Eating food is healthy. Not eating food is unhealthy.

You need fat and protein to live. You need various vitamins and minerals. That sounds like a perfectly healthy sandwich to me.


It may be high on calories, but that does not make it unhealthy; it just makes it something you should not eat excess of.


Nothing unhealthy about eating that regularly if you only want to live until 40. That's long enough to reproduce so who needs to live beyond that?

What if it's turkey pastrami?!? That's what I eat, but only because it is ALWAYS the cheapest sandwich meat at the supermarket deli (for some reason).
