Mark Your Calendars, Today is the Debut of the “Dan-wich”

Chances are you’ve had a Reuben or a Rachel sandwich but today a new sandwich delight is revealed!

The “Dan-Wich”, a creation of the Black Forrest Deli in Bethlehem has made its debut today!

Cheese, Bacon, Tomato... 3 layers of gooey goodness!

Triple decker Grilled Cheese Sammich with gooey cheese and crispy bacon – maybe some tomatoes, I love onions on my grilled cheese too! Yum…

The Black Forrest Deli suggests this to be paired with their homemade soups made fresh every day. Chicken noodle, split pea or their classic Famous Borsch!

If you want more of the Russian experience they also hold a reservation only Russian feast on Thursday evenings!

My suggestion is to try out that Dan-wich! Can’t make it out? They deliver!

6′ 9″, 365 lbs. Have Your Attention Yet?

From the Steelhawks:

The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks have added another big name to start off 2012. In a deal with the Reading Express, the Steelhawks acquired 2nd team All-IFL OL Chris Nunn. The Steelhawks gave up “Future Considerations” in return.

Nunn, a 6’9 365lb offensive lineman is a seasoned veteran of arena football. He has over 5 years experience, the last four of which were spent at Reading. Nunn was named to the All-IFL 2nd team in 2011, and is a great addition to what should be a stalwart Steelhawk offensive line.

Coach Thompson has had the opportunity to coach Nunn in the past and is happy about the recent transaction. “I am extremely excited to welcome another familiar face and arena veteran to the Steelhawks Nation. We are trying to build a great program here in the Lehigh Valley area and you can’t find a better guy to help be a part of that process. He is a proven winner and playmaker and our fans will enjoy watching him and getting to know him as well. This is another great day for the Steelhawks.”
