Save the Deli

David Sax is a man on a mission. His goal? To save the Jewish delicatessen from extinction. His tools? A website called Save the Deli and a new book that documents his obsession and his road trip across America, visiting and writing about the last of the traditional delis (ingesting several hundred pounds of meat along the way).  Like great corned beef piled high, Sax heaps three pages of praise on Jimmy & Drew’s:

“Since I’d left Chicago, I’d had some good deli, but Jimmy & Drew’s blew me away…In that bite of kugel I realized great Jewish delicatessens could happen anywhere.”

The Festival of Books & Culture presents “Save the Deli: One Man’s Globetrotting Quest for Pickled Meats, Mile-High Sandwiches, and the Taste of the True Jewish Delicatessen,” with author David Sax on Monday, November 16, 6 pm at where else? Jimmy & Drew’s 28th Street Delicatessen, 2855 28th Street, in Boulder.  Reservations are required.  $30 includes three-course deli dinner, non-alcoholic beverage, author talk and book signing. RSVP to kathryn@boulderjcc.org, or call 303-998-1021.

The Festival of Books and Culture is sponsored by Menorah, BoulderJCC Library, BoulderJCC Shalom Family, Shalom Baby, MoVeRs, Jewish Book Council, 18 Pomegranates, Rose Community Foundation, SCFD, Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado, and ADL.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
