Bad news to report, folks. The Great Recession is wreaking havoc on the sandwich business – especially in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. I was down in what a friend likes to call “Northern Colorado Springs” yesterday as Mrs. Turkey Sandwich was having ankle surgery. As many of you know, we used to live down that way, so I used her time under the knife to go visit some of my old Turkey Sandwich haunts.
First stop: Bear Rock Cafe – CLOSED
Okay, second stop: Smiling Moose Deli – ALSO CLOSED!
Friends, if this doesn’t tell you that this economy is still taking a huge dump, then you are a hopeless optimist. A long time ago, a very smart man said, “once the sandwich business goes in the tank, we’re all fucked.”
Let me tell you something, people: we’re officially fucked. Especially when my only choice was Firehouse Subs.
