The world’s largest** sandwich crawl is back for it’s third year of sandwich festivities! What is a Sandwich Crawl you might ask? Well, its just like a bar crawl except there are sandwiches too so it’s like way better! We will once again be visiting four different Grandwich venues over a 6 hour period sampling delicious sandwiches at each stop. The idea is to split a Grandwich with 2 or 3 other people at each restaurant so we can try as many as possible!

THERE WILL BE T-SHIRTS FOR THIS EVENT – Let me know ASAP if you will be wanting an official sandwich crawl T-shirt!

Our four stops and sandwich crawl schedule will be posted closer to the date of the crawl. All locations will be downtown GR.
