Tournament of Sandwiches Update: Affairs Cafe Substitution

By Volcano Staff on March 18, 2013


Yesterday, The News Tribune reported Affairs Cafe and Bakery in University Place has closed.

Sad news, indeed. The Weekly Volcano would like to thank co-owner Gay Landry and crew for all the good times, for supporting our rag, for hosting our Nosh League and for serving one tasty Monte Cristo Sandwich, among other delights. We will miss you Gay. We wish you the best.

Affairs Cafe's closing does leave a hole in our Tournament of Sandwiches. Affair was schedule to battle Nordstrom Cafe Friday, March 22 in the "Specialty" sandwich region. Checking the rules book, Section 43 states, "If a sandwich drops out for any reason, the next highest vote getter during the seeding process will be added to the vacant spot. In other words, Lakewood's Moon Rise Cafe's Monte Cristo Sandwich received the 65th most votes by Weekly Volcano readers during the February seed voting. Therefore, Moon Rise Cafe's Monte Cristo Sandwich will face off with Nordstrom Cafe's Braised Short Ribs Sandwich Friday, March 22.
