National Bologna Day


All day, pay as you go

Bologna might be scrapple’s oft-neglected (and equally disgusting, IMHO) little sister, but today, you’re allowed to relish as many slices of your fave childhood lunchmeat as you so desire. That’s because it’s National Bologna Day, and Wursthaus Schmitz is cooking up something much better than your mother ever made during those brown-bag days. “The Lyoner” is a thick-cut, fried bologna sandwich topped with Muenster, dill pickle, horseradish sauce and raw onion. Snag one today from this Reading Terminal eatery.
