Linked article describes signature sandwiches from different states. Mass was the "fluffenutter", which is "wicked awesome" and invented here.

Were they spot on in your state?

Outside of US:  What is the signature sandwich of your area?

MN here - I would agree that they are spot on with the Juicy Lucy. This burger was invented at Matt's Bar in South Minneapolis, to which I have visited many times. It is SO GOOD!

I was surprised they didn't go with the po'boy.

My biggest fear was that I lived in California my whole life without eating the signature sandwich.  But to my relief, I've had a french dip plenty of times.  I'm not even big on red meat, and I love the french dip.

I find it amazing that I've never even heard of a fluffenutter, until reading your post today. Fast forward 2 hours (til now)... I'm sitting here watching the Sopranos and at the end of the episode I just watched, Chris stops by his mother's house and asks her to make him a fluffenutter... Too weird.

Marshmallow fluff is a New England thing.  Put it in hot chocolate and it is over the top good!  Melt it on fudge sundaes, mmm.

in Michigan I'm not sure that a pasty qualifies as a sandwich but if you are ever in northern Michigan, run ...don't walk to get  one anywhere around Mackinaw Island.

I would have actually thought for Michigan it would have been the coney dog.   World famous in Detroit and Flint.

Pennsylvania has two sandwiches that deserve mentioning. From the eastern part of the state is the famous Philly Cheesesteak. From the west is the Primanti Brother's sandwich...

They actually call the style of sandwich they have pictured for Montana a clubfoot. Ironically, The Nuke is one of the sandwiches Staggering Ox makes that isn't a clubfoot...

I'm sure there are some people in Butte pissed off that ours isn't a Pork Chop Johns.

I just realized that the Delaware place has a location adjacent to my backyard. Their sandwich is "the bobbie," Thanksgiving dinner on a roll. I've had that type of sandwich before, but this one uses real in-house roasted turkey rather than deli slices, so I'll have to check it out.

What about the middle of the state?

I'm surprised a bit that the Italian Sub is the sandwich of New Jersey. Don't get me wrong, I love me an Italian, and I probably eat 2-3 or those a month, minimum, but for me, the NJ sandwich of choice is always going to be something involving pork roll. So evil. So Jersey.

Zagats missed on this one, I think.

Just went to it. It's awesome. Got half a bobbie and half an italian. Maybe the best italian sub I've ever had.

I rarely have a roast beef sandwich in New York, but I love falafel, banh mi, pulled pork and lobster roll sandwiches. I probably eat more falafel/hummus than hamburgers.

Hershey is in the middle of Pennsylvania, so I guess it would be chocolate covered cookie sandwich....

There is no question that the sandwich of Maine is the lobster roll. My wife and I went to Bar Harbor for a few days this summer and had some of the most D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S  lobster on the planet.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
