DYM PRESENTS: FOOD BEEF 2018!!!!!


FOOD BEEF 2018!!!!!

Food Beef is Beef with Food but not Beef the Food

It’s lunch time in Special Ed Nation. The people are hungry and they don’t know what to eat. For the past six weeks the fine folks of this league have been eating mediocre fare at midday. Some are having their fifth PB&J this week, some are settling for a half-a-sandwich from Panera, or perhaps some are doing a no-carb thing so they just roll a slice of turkey and a slice of cheese together into a little tube and dunk it in a jar of mayo.

The DYM editorial staff is having a salad for lunch today. Can you believe that shit?! A SALAD! A goddamn salad with garbanzo beans and cucumbers. It's utterly flavorless and not filling. Well ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! DYM is tired of weak lunches! we DEMAND a better sandwich and we will NOT BE DENIED!

Food Beef is BACK by popular demand!!!!!

We’ll be SPICING UP the second half of the season with a local sandwich competition!!!

We’ve carefully selected the consensus top 8 ranked sandwich spots in the Madison NJ metro area. Some are well-known BANGIN delis and some are new places we’ve been dying to try. We will visit one deli every weekend from now until the first weekend of December. In week 15, the finalists will be chosen to face off in the FOOD BEEF PLAYOFFS. Then The SANDWICH CHAMPION will be crowned ahead of the Special Ed Superbowl in week 16.
