When in doubt for lunch, just go with a hoagie. This Friday, May 5th, the hoagie is the star as we celebrate National Hoagie Day!

The hoagie is also referred to as a sub or a hero. According to National Day Calendar, the hoagie first came to life in 1953 as workers in a shipyard located in Philadelphia began to put all kinds of  meats, cheeses, and lettuce between two slices of bread. The shipyard in Philly was known as Hog Island, and the sandwich was named after the location which ultimately was shortened to "hoagie"!
