how many NYC deli corn beef sandwiches could a human, or even an inhuman EM, eat in 24 hours? YIKES
i say the over/under is 4
At Katz's, I could do at least 5 or 6 pastrami or corned beef sandwiches in a day, even though I always tip the guy carving so I get the best meat and the biggest portions. And I always get the fries cooked in schmaltz. But I could do 5, no problem. The sandwich there is not anywhere near as big as at the places uptown.
At the Carnegie, Stage, or Roxie, I think I could MAYBE do 2 or 3 sandwiches in a day, but I'd probably feel really crappy for a couple of days. Those things are the size of Barry Bonds' head.
Theresa, The Inhuman Eating Machine session I did in NYC a couple months ago will be published soon enough. It didn't quite turn out the way I thought it would, but it must be documented!
