The Arrangement is very excited to announce that our Saturday, May 5th gig falls on a holiday of grave historical significance, not only to the proud people of Mexico, but to all.
We speak, of course, of National Hoagie Day.
Unlike Cinco de Mayo, National Hoagie Day belongs to a category of holidays known as “Unofficial Holidays” which are “totally made up” and often “a complete waste of time and energy.” In 2008, for instance, Amtrak christened May 5th as National Train Day, to better educate the public about the illustrious history of rail travel; they discontinued the holiday in 2016, since rail travel had apparently died. (I didn’t even know it was possible to discontinue holidays. But I hereby discontinue Columbus Day, Black Friday, and April Fools’ Day. You’re welcome.)
The true origins of National Hoagie Day are unknown. But as with most of our nation’s most hallowed days, it’s safe to assume there are sinister corporate forces to thank for its very existence—namely, a triumvirate of Oscar Mayer, Hellmann’s, and George Soros. Still, no one can deny the thrill of biting into a hoagie, sub, grinder, or hero, as long as it’s not from Subway.
So on National Hoagie Day, The Arrangement asks that you join us in most solemn solidarity at the banquet table of all humankind, where we will break bread, slather it in condiments, layer it with lettuce, tomato, onion, and proteins, hoist it onto a plate with plenty of chips, and just go to town on that thing. And since it’s Cinco de Mayo, wash it all down with a nice cerveza or tequila. ¡Salud!
Stay hungry, my friends, and join The Arrangement on Saturday, May 5 at the Judge’s Bench Pub from 9:00pm to 12:30am, to celebrate music, hoagies, and the Battle of Puebla.
The Arrangement features Mr. Drew Fontaine on acoustic guitar and vocals, accompanied by Mr. Phil Rosensteel on djembe, backing vocals, cymbals, penny whistle, and quite possibly the Macedonian šupelka. They play fun and inventive covers of all your favorite songs. Unless all your favorite songs are by Post Malone. Sorry, but that’s just not how The Arrangement rolls. Yee-ikes.
Have any questions? Please holla.
