Can you imagine life without sandwiches? We can't. Sandwiches have been around for a long time. 

John Montagu, the 4th earl of Sandwich, is credited with creating the sandwich. As the story goes, Montagu (13 November 1718-30 April 1792) loved to play cards. When he was playing and he was hungry, he would order his meat to be delivered to him between two slices of bread so that he would not get his fingers greasy. Other people began doing the same and that is how the sandwich was borne.

So, if you love sandwiches, we encourage you to celebrate today by eating one. Here is a list of great sandwiches around the Las Vegas valley: 

Tom's Urban has several great sandwiches on its Food Truck Sandwiches menu. Customer favorites include the BLT Lobster Rol with 100 % cracked lobster ($26); Austin Blues Pulled Pork BBQ with mustard slaw and fresh Granny Smith apples ($15); and Prime Rib Philly Cheesesteak Dip with Havarti cheese ($23). All sandwiches are served with choice of garlic fries, sweet potato fries, rosemary tots or a kale romaine side salad.
