Which Wich is a restaurant franchise whose D’Iberville branch has become a favorite lunchtime hangout for the GCCDS. They offer 51 customizable sandwiches, which you order by filling out details on a brown paper sandwich bag. Last year, my colleagues James and Britton completed their goal of eating all 51 sandwiches. The next step was clear: to pit them against each other to determine the ultimate victor — the #1 Which Wich sandwich.
To this end, at our office Secret Santa party, James received a custom Which Wich tournament bracket. Measuring a full 20 x 30 inches, the bracket features 50 sandwiches in 10 divisions (Turkey, Ham & Pork, Beef, Chicken, Seafood, Vegetarian, Italian, Comforts, Classics, & Breakfast). (The 51st sandwich, the Wicked, has 5 meats and 3 cheeses and is excluded from the bracket). Each week, two sandwiches face off and a winner is determined. In the end, only one will remain.
The tournament has gained the enthusiastic participation of the office and each Wednesday, new contests are held. Today, for instance, the Chicken Cheesesteak defeated the Chicken Parma, while the Montecristo fell to the Gyro and the humble Chicken beat the Reuben, a heavyweight.
Until next Which Wich Wednesday — cheers.
