This month is Let’s Do Lunch Downtown, and I’ve been doing my best to sample the special lunch menus at each and every restaurant participating. The countdown is on with 2 days to go, so if you haven’t made it out yet here are some more reasons to check it out!
From the time we’re kids, sandwiches are the quintessential lunchtime food for lots of us. And even when you outgrow peanut butter and jelly, there are still a whole lot reasons to salivate over a great sandwich – like these 3 Let’s Do Lunch specials!

SYDNEY’S – 1 Forks Market Rd #215, (204) 942-6075
