Even things that don't seem to need it can be man-ed up a bit, like a recliner with a built-in fridge and cupholders, or an F-250 dually with Calvin pissing on a Chevy logo and Yosemite Sam mudflaps, which you stole from a Chevy. Up yours Chevy! Manning up the already coronary-inducing Philly sando scene, Jake's Sandwich Board
With wooden tables, chairs, and counter seating surrounding an open kitchen in a chalkboard-menu-equipped two-tone dining room, JSB's the just-opened project from two food service vets looking to "man-up sandwiches" via dangerous amounts of serious meats (think an organized swimming competition with sharks in the pool). Grab a card and pencil and mark down your roll, meat, and toppings and hand it to a sandwicher, who'll (cave)manishly pull/cut your meat (including some from a whole roasted pig and/or house-cured corned beef sitting smack on the counter), slap it into a locally-baked Crangi roll, and top it with your choice of roasted peppers and long hots, raw onions, chili relish, chopped pork rinds, and broccoli rabe, aka, broccoli di rape, something Big Broccoli Rabe really didn't want you to know. Sandwich varieties include the Barn Yard (pulled pork, ground veal, provolone), the Raging Bull (rib eye steak, corned beef, Russian dressing, Swiss), and the hot-dog-strip- and steak-filled omelet covered in cheese and homemade marinara and stuffed inside a roll known as the Sloppy Dog -- not to be confused with the Sloppy Dogg, Snoop's nickname before he learned to color inside the lines, then quickly forgot where his crayons were
The soda fountains, which pour a strong lineup of microbrewed pops, are situated next to a vintage milkshake machine turning out Bassetts-based shakes and floats, the one thing that couldn't ever be manned up. Except maybe if you got your hands on some rainbow sherbert.
