National Sandwich Day: 31 Sandwiches We Love in America

Of all the arbitrary food holidays on the calendar, National Sandwich Day has to be the most important. November 3rd is a day to celebrate the sandwich—something we seem to practice just about every other day of the year, too.

You saw the NY edition; here are 31 sandwiches that we love across the country. Now, of course we didn't cover all the lovable ones in the land. This is just a handful (er, 31 handfuls) that our contributors have raved about this year. If we forgot yours, do tell us, and we'll add it to our Sandwich a Day to-eat list.
