Save the Deli

Party Time in NYC and Toronto!

Well folks, the clock is ticking. Books are already in stores, and if you order online, you’ll get them sent to you in just a few days. But things officially get started three weeks from yesterday (which was Yom Kippur), at the big launch party here in New York City.

What’s in store?

Well, first off we have a name. After weeks of intense voting, DELI-LICIOUS won out with 22% of votes counted. Victory goes to Larry Kerman, who suggested it in the comments. Bravo Larry.

Here’s the details:


Deli-licious: A Celebration of the Jewish Deli in New York

October 19th, 2009
7.30 pm at Benís Kosher Delicatessen
209 W. 38th Street ē Manhattan, New York 10018
Phone: (212) 398-2367

The event will feature:

-music and hosting by Jelvis, the Jewish Elvis
-deli themed world records with the Universal Record Database (open to the public. Submit record suggestions to me or to the URDB if you plan to attend. Any record is kosher, as long as it’s Jewish deli related)
-a special appearance by Friarís Club Dean and Borscht Belt legend Freddie Roman
-meats, mustards, and deli food galore…courtesy of Benís Kosher Delicatessen
-a reading, Q&A, and book signing with David Sax, author of Save the Deli (that’s Me!)

We hope it’ll be the over the top Bat Mitzvah that New York Deli deserves.

And then, just three days later, the party train arrives in Toronto:


5:30 – 7:30 pm at Caplansky’s Delicatessen
365 College St. Toronto, ON

What to expect:

Caplansky’s smoked meat, tongue, and other delicacies
Drinks at the bar
Live music from the Varsity Jews
A reading, Q&A, and book signing with David Sax, author of Save the Deli
Contests, prizes, and more surprises!

Presented by McClelland & Stewart, Caplansky’s, Koffler Center, Daily XY, and Ashkenaz

So what does this mean for you?

1. Help spread the word: forward this post in emails, on Twitter and Facebook, and via the old mouth
2. Bring folks: friends, co-workers, lovers, ex-lovers, old friends, new friends, and strangers
3. Show up and party: and bring some money for a book, because I can’t wait to sign if for you. In mustard.

See you there.

    When can the fine folks in Montreal anticipate a visit? While Schwartz’s is always packed, space can usually be found at Snowdon deli.
