I know I’ve said it before, but when I think of people and companies, who inspire me, I think of people who think OUTSIDE THE BOX. Today, I thought I’d share a sandwich with you. “What? A SANDWICH?” You say. Yes. A sandwich. But, not just ANY sandwich. This sandwich is one of inspirational proportions! A little while back, I mentioned my longing for home sweet home, and a fellow blogger reminded me of one of the many things back home, that all Pittsburghers likely reserve a special place for (many, right next to their beer)… in their stomachs, that is.
As you can see, these sandwiches have a colossal size and a reputation to match. They give the phrase, “The Works” a whole new meaning! Slaw, French Fries, Tomatoes, and whatever meat, cheese and sauce you like, all slapped on sourdough bread. It may look gross, and may seem like it’s a bit TOO MUCH. Well, it is kind of gross, but it tastes GREAT, and it may be a bit too much, but you can always share with a friend or save some for later.
They are open 24 hours, so you can stop in after the clubs shut down (even the after hours ones!), or you can stop in and eat breakfast with the early rising blue-collar workers that fuel the city! Either way, it’s one heck of an eating experience! If you ever make it to Pittsburgh, this is ONE thing you HAVE to try…just ask anyone on the street for the name of one place you should eat before you leave. And, trust me when I say, this will be at the top of the list!
Now, you could go to their more recent, Harmar location, but I wouldn’t recommend it, if you want to get the TRUE, Primanti Brothers Experience. You need to go “DAHN TAHN” (Which is Pittsburgh-ese for “downtown.” And not just “dahntahn”…you have to make sure you go to the Strip District. Now, don’t get all worried – I’m not talking about the “adult” district…The Strip District is just a shopping district, where you and truly and authentically experience the Burgh…right by the docks. 🙂
So remember, yes, it’s going to be smothered in coleslaw, french fries, grease, meat and whatever else you choose, slapped on sourdough bread, but it’s going to leave you more than satisfied – so satisfied you might just think you DID visit the “adult” district. Heh heh. And that, my readers…is inspiration! If you make something crafty, does it DO IT FOR THE CROWD, enough to make them rave about it like I just did about a Primanti’s sandwich? If not, maybe it’s time to reevaluate and ask yourself what you can do. Trust me…I’m right there thinking with you! 🙂 (Right after I suck the saliva down from thinking about a Delicious, Hot, Pastrami from Primanti’s!).
Now, for those of you who have decided to JOIN ME ON THE JOURNEY with our tasks to provide inspiration. Here’s what we are doing between today and tomorrow…
(Day 2) – Tell a friend about your practice of using the mental dumping exercise. Become the teacher and explain the purpose behind it. Encourage someone else to join in on it! Whether or not they do, you will benefit from sharing. When you become the teacher, you take increased ownership and personal responsibility for your new task…which will hopefully become a good habit! YOU ALSO LEARN BETTER WHEN YOU TEACH. 🙂
