Teachers love Killer Sandwiches

This is for all our customers who are teachers, First, raise your hand. Then, turn the palm of your hand so it is facing behind you. Now, pat yourself on the back. You are doing a great job! Happy Teacher Appreciation Day from the B&B Crew!

We all know that apples are given to teachers, but imagine how a teacher would feel if they received a Killer Sandwich!

Debuting the Sunday Drivers Traveling Trophy during Week 94

This week we debuted the Sunday Drivers’ Traveling Trophy.  Toss the low score for the day and you take the trophy home for a week!  It was a beautiful morning with a large turnout.  There were about 20 of us tossing discs.  Plus, we had a disc golf caddy cart that can carry anything you need for disc golf.  Best way to describe it is to think about Rodney Dangerfield’s golf bag from CaddyShack.  Just check out the video below and you’ll see how cool it is.

Brant tossed the lowest score and took home the Sunday Drivers’ Traveling Trophy!

New Names for the Same Cuts of Meat

Recently, the National Pork Board and the National Cattelmen’s Beef Association came up with the idea to change the name of several cuts of pork. The new names are very similar to names for similar cuts of beef. The goal is to make it easier for people to identify a cut of meat. See the news release using the following link, “Pork Cuts to Get New Consumer-Friendly Names at the Meat Case

Of course, the new names are going to cause some confusion.  Even our third generations get tripped up a little when trying to use the new names.  It is just hard to change when you’ve used certain names your whole life.  Check out John jr as he explains some of the new names for cuts of meat on WHOtv’s Agribusiness report that aired April 11, 2013.

We will custom cut to your specifications!

Regardless of the new names, we can say the following with 100% confidence!  Pork is still Pork and Beef is still Beef.  Therefore, just let our 3rd generation butchers know what you want and we’ll make sure we direct you to the right cut of meat.  Need something special?  No problem!  Just ask and we’ll custom cut it for you!

ALT – Best of the Best…

ALT Magazine mentioned B&B in one of their articles titled, “BEST OF THE BEST – Award Winning Burgers, Nachos, and Sandwiches Found in Unlikely Places.”   ALT is an annual magazine produced by Grand View University seniors in the honors magazine course.  It has been widely considered one of the best student magazines in the country.

If the desire for a ham and cheese on a foot- long piece of white bread strikes; don’t go to B&B Grocery, Meat & Deli on 2001 Southeast Sixth St. because owners John and Joe Brooks won’t make that simple of a sandwich.
