Score a FREE #19 for Langer's Deli's 65th Anniversary
Langer's Deli, home of “the world’s best pastrami,” will be celebrating their 65th anniversary via a two-day event, and they'll be giving away free #19 Hot Pastrami Sandwiches to their patrons in honor of the occasion.
The #19, for the uninitiated, includes hand-cut hot pastrami, cole slaw, Russian dressing, and Swiss cheese, served on double-baked Rye bread.
“It’s our way of saying ‘thank you most kindly’ to our friends, fans, and patrons who have been there for us over our 65-year history,” says owner Norm Langer. “The #19 is our most popular sandwich, and what better way to celebrate our anniversary than by giving back to those who have helped us get to this point — our valued customers.”
The two-day Langer's 65th Anniversary Celebration will take place on June 15 and 16, and will find the restaurant open much later than usually--yep, you can get dinner there! They'll be open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday the 15th, and 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday the 16th.
Okay, here's what you really want to know: How to get your free #19. Here's the how to:
Each customer is eligible to receive one free #19 Sandwich; the only requirements are that the customer be seated and served by a Langer’s server inside Langer’s Deli on standard Langer’s seating (a booth, a counter stool, or a Langer’s chair) during the event hours; free #19 Sandwiches are not available for to-go orders.
Langer's first opened on June 17, 1947, as a 12-stool luncheonette at 704 South Alvarado; it's been at the same location the whole time. Langer’s has served more than 4 million pounds of pastrami since its inception, and pastrami is the most popular meat they serve, and the #19 the most popular sandwich on the menu.
