    Isn’t Manchester in England?  I m confused, what does “England” mean, well in England?  I m thinking England as in one of the four parts of the UK.  So north of England would be Scotland.   I m genuinely intrigued Rob.

    Grinder is the Connecticut term for sub, hoagie, or wedge (a westchester NY thing). Hot or cold. And while Connecticut owns pizza for the nation, and we do have some great grinder shops, we can tip our hats to Jersey and Philly.

    Is Apizza even considered pizza?

    If you know the proper name is Apizza, then you do not need to ask :)

    Im a lurker in that thread. I think they mostly have them covered. In the interest of thread integrity here, lets stick to grinders, hoagies, subs and wedges. I will say, there is a local joint near me called Rocky's deli in Millwood, NY.  They are famous for a wedge called the hashtag. On paper it is gross, in reality its amazing with a Boylans black cherry soda. I do not have any pictures because my cardiologist strictly forbids me from being within a hundred yards of that place (we go once a month). :)

    No. In the north of england .in the   uk. Scotland is its own country like wales and Ireland.  
    So scotland is the  north most country in the u.k
    North england is like carlise. Newcastle. Hull. Manchester.  Liverpool. Blackburn. Those  grim places😉maybe my grammer was shit.  As in the northern part of England

  • Oh yes. Grim. 
    Bit of banter with south and north. 
    North it rains all the  time and its dreary.
    South is warmer and posher. They  call us southern softies.
    And we all say its grim up north.

    Wedges?!?! What the hell is that?!

    Legend has it that the name originated at a deli — some say Landi’s near Yonkers High School — where the matriarch of the family had a thick Italian accent. Her pronunciation of “sandwich” evolved into the shortened “wedge.” Others say the term originated because deli owners cut the overstuffed sandwich diagonally and create two halves with wedge-shaped ends.

    I'm sure it's not the same as the original poster intended but, here in western Maryland, a wedge is a baked panini-style sandwich but with pizza crust as the bread.  Wedge/Wedgie are both acceptible terms.  I don't know how far geographically this term stretches.

    Around here a wedge is a lettuce wedge with bleu cheese dressing and bacon bits

    So not a cheesesteak or even a hoagie but a very PA sandwich for sure. Thin sliced scrapple, American cheese, fried eggs, and bacon jam on a bagel. What a delightful monstrosity.

    Wow....I usually go pork roll egg and cheese for a breakfast sammy but that looks great.

    I'd opt for an everything bagel though. Or Jalapeno Cheddar
