Sydney Sandwich Social

Do you remember swapping your lunch with the kid next to you in the school playground, upgrading your boring ol' cheese and Vegemite sanger to the excitement of a peanut butter one?

Are you the type of person who still checks out what everyone else is having for lunch, and enquiring "so what does that taste like?"

Do you insist on swapping mains with your dining companion halfway through your meal, just so you can try more things on the menu?

Are you sick of mentally answering this constant stream of questions?

Then check this out.

Spring picnic at Botanic Gardens.
Everyone brings a sandwich.
Swap half of it for another.
Eat.
Chat.
Soak up the sun.

It's Sydney Sandwich Social.
Saturday 24 September 2005.

    This sounds like such a fun event, A.G. I wish I could be there!

    Fab. I'll be there and have forwarded the event on.

    The pressure of deciding on a sandwich is going to kill me though.

    I have already started thinking about what sandwiches to bring :)

    Hey AG, good luck with your sandwich day - what an interesting idea!

    Besides being far, far away in Brissie, I will also be watching the AFL grand final that day :) Even though my poor old Lions will not be playing... :(

    Hi Nic - Sounds like you may need to consider a local version of this event! =)

    Hi Saffron - Hurrah!

    Hi Sue - Excellent! The more the merrier!

    Yes sandwich stress is impending. But hey, remember. It's. Just. A. Sandwich. =)

    Hi Pinkcocoa - lol. Excellent. I am sure you will bring something suitably delicious!

    Hi Ben - You have a very good memory! Hope you can make it!

    Hi Kelly - It was Saffron's initiative that got this off the ground. She saw it elsewhere and thought that was exactly what Sydney needed!

    I'll have a sandwich for you. I am so not a football nut (would you believe I actually type foodball nut just then? Yeah. That's where my mind is!).

    Hi Chick Pea - You should check out the next New York version! ie the original! Check out the first one here: http://www.tremendousrabbit.com/DSS/

    And yes, of course there'll be pics! =)

    Hi Big Bok - Hopefully it should be fun day out for all involved. I'm looking forward to seeing all the different combos! =P
