Only in Pittsburgh do people visit and say “What’s that sandwich here?” and yinz not only know what it is, but how to spell “Primanti.”

When our D.C.-based college friend and his wife came in for the Winter Classic, we were looking for a place to eat before they headed to the game when I learned that neither of them had ever been to Primanti Bros., which is a crime, a CRIME, I say! Especially because our friend is from Johnstown, is a HUGE Steelers fan and has been to more games than I have (which is to say, at least one).

So, a wrong has been righted. They have both officially eaten a Primanti Bros. sandwich. A REAL one. All is now right with the world (except that their Caps fans and they won).
