For Sale: Tat’s Frequent Feeder Card with Seven Stamps


A Tat’s East Coast Deli Frequent Feeder Card with 7 stamps on it. I no longer live in Seattle, so it looks like I’m not going to be able to fill out the remaining 3 stamps to qualify for the free sandwich.

To get your free sandwich at Tat’s, you have two options:
1) Buy this card from me for $2.50 and buy three more sandwiches and get a stamp each time.
2) If you have a card with 3 or more stamps on it already, you’re good to go for a free sandwich.

If you think about it, I’m really giving you about $50 worth of work for $2.50.  That’s a good deal if you ask me.

I will accept cash or checks, but I will wait for the check to clear before sending the card.

I’m leaving Seattle and I may not get my free sandwich from Tat’s

My time in Seattle is coming to an end.  After working up here for the last 14 months, I’m heading back home to Denver. Mendelson’s, I’ll be there soon.

For the last 14 months I have been carrying around what I like to call a “frequent feeder” card from Tat’s Delicatessen.  When you buy 10, you get one for free.  As you can see, I have seven stamps.  I need three more and I’m here for one more week.

Ok, yea, there’s plenty of time to get three more stamps.  But there are also a few places I would like to hit before I go.  The Paseo is one of them.  I don’t even know where The Paseo is, but people rave about it.

My friend Blue, who’s basement I live in when I’m in Seattle also tells me about a place in Ballard where all of the Longshormen hang out.  He says they have a pretty kick ass sandwich.  I’m definitely going there this week.

I also need to visit Delicatus and Specialty’s at least one more time.  It wouldn’t be right for me to leave them without saying goodbye.

So what should I do?  Maybe I could do as the street kids do at the bus stop and try sell my frequent feeder card like they do with transfer passes?

The Line at Tat’s is Ridiculous

Tat’s is a solid sub shop.  They specialize in Philly Cheesesteaks, but they also have some nice Turkey Sandwiches.  They’ve always done a nice little business and there is typically a line, but I could get in and out with sandwich in a few minutes.

They recently moved – literally around the corner from their old location in Pioneer Square, Seattle – and all of the sudden, you would think it’s the Viper Room circa 1993.

Here’s a look at the line, it’s ridiculously long.

The ridiculous line at Tat's

This line is at least 30 minutes to just order a sandwich.  Then it’s probably another 15 to get it.  Screw that.

The thing that really sucks is that I only need three more stamps on my frequent feeder card to get a free sandwich.  Unless I bust out for an early lunch, it looks like that’s not going to happen any time soon.

I like Turkey Sandwiches, but Screw This

Tat’s opened up their new joint today. The Turkey Sandwich Report was there to document the festivities and we have one thing to report:

It was crowded as fuck.

And for those of you that know the Turkey Sandwich Report, we don’t wait in line, So we took our lunch business elsewhere. Tat’s has good sandwiches, but not good enough for us to stand in line for 40 minutes.

Just saying.
