Be a Taste-Tester at The Urban Studio Cafe Sandwich Contest!

Do you have exceptionally distinguishing taste buds when it comes to sandwiches? Do you fall asleep dreaming of pastrami and rye? Did you request a giant sandwich instead of birthday cake as a child? Then we need YOU!

The Urban Studio Cafe will be holding a sandwich contest at the North City farmer's market on Saturday, July 25 from 9am to noon. We are looking to sell a "signature sandwich" at the cafe, and we want your help determining what that special sandwich will be. At the farmer's market, you will be able to sample sandwiches created by a variety of chefs around the city and then vote on your favorite. (Yum!) We'll also take suggestions for other food items you'd like to see.

It'll be a great time. Be there or be square!
