$3 back-to-school sandwiches at Jake’s University City

Might not be a better way to say "Welcome back students!" than cheap killer sandwiches. Expect lines as folks swoop in to score great house-roasted meats carved to order to stuff big Italian rolls, offered for just $3 during Wednesday lunch. (Faculty is welcome to partake, too.)

Where: Jake's Sandwich Board at 125 S. 40th St.

When: September 9, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

How much: $3 per sandwich
