Cuban Sandwich Show 2012 X: Taste of the Cuban Sandwich

The Taste of the Cuban Sandwich was to be held at the Cuban Club, but they weren't finished with their renovation, so it was moved to an HCC building right across the street. Part of the event was the taste, and part was the building of the biggest Cuban Sandwich ever, which was verified, cut up and distributed to Metropolitan Ministries to serve homeless people.

A few photographs from the event...
