Be’Wiched is a full on gourmet deli located in the warehouse district of Minneapolis. On a hungry afternoon driving around, this place happened to catch my eye. Come to find out, the place has been rated the #1 deli to grab a sandwich by multiple critics. Mike Ryan and Matthew Bickford are the master chefs behind the place. Both have culinary backgrounds which they decided to use to create these delectable sandwiches. I ended up ordering the classic pastrami, and god damn I have never tasted something so fresh and delicate. The sandwiches are priced around $10 a pop, so they are a little spendy, but worth it in my eyes.
Not sure what to expect for this one since it is their first annual festival. Over in River Falls, WI., they are having an all-out bacon festival; anything and everything will be bacon. There will be pig races, a bacon cook off, and live music. Expect anything from ice cream to a variety of bacon-wrapped goods. Also, they plan on a beer tent featuring a variety of micro-brews as well to accommodate the greased up bacon. So now that the state fair has come to an end, it’s time to come back for greasy seconds!
