Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade 2010

I’m amazed how it’s already December. Better post the recent Thanksgiving Parade photos before they get dated.

City Sub

Went to Park Slope for a sandwich (Thanks Yelp)

City Sub Interior

Pretty simple joint: a bunch of guys make you a large sandwich with great ingredients for a good price. They would shave the ingredients like cheese right before it went on the sandwich.

Meatball Sub with everything

I think the meatball sub is usually just bread + meat w/ sauce + cheese. I opted for everything, just to get more veggies in my diet. This monster sandwich plus a soda was $8.

Roast Beef & Turkey with everything

This was a bit pricier with two meats, but still great. The location is kind of out of the way (Park Slope), but it’s right outside the subway exit and has lots of customers. I would go again, but the distance negates a lot of the great sandwich advantage.
