Adult Education presents - Dinner Conversation with David Sax, author of "Save the Deli", at Pancer's Original Deli - March 20, 5:30 to 8 PM

Join fellow City Shul’ers for dinner, conversation, and memories at Pancer's Original Deli, which was established in 1957.

David Sax, author of “Save the Deli” and a member of City Shul, will lead a conversation about delis, food, and changes in Jewish cuisine over the last 100 years.

David is a writer, journalist, and the author of five books, including the international bestseller "The Revenge of Analog", and "Save the Deli", every opinionated Jewish pastrami fan’s favourite.  His articles on culture, business, and yes, Jewishness, have appeared in The Globe and Mail, The New York Times, Bloomberg Businessweek, The New Yorker, Tablet, and dozens of other publications.

Event Details:

The event will begin at 5:30 PM sharp. David will begin his talk at this time, and then we will all order our meals, with plenty of time for shmoozing, reminiscing and then, schmoozing some more :)

What's for Dinner?

Each person will order their dinner meal individually. Beverages and any additional items, plus any gratuities must be paid for separately. The estimated cost per person is approximately $25, depending on what you order.

The menu offers several dairy/vegetarian options.

The kitchen serves both dairy and meat options. As this is a City Shul event, we ask you to refrain from ordering bacon, shellfish, or milk with meat together (i.e. cheeseburger, so that everyone's comfort is ensured.

Note that our commitment to Pancer's is based on each individual ordering a complete meal (go ahead, eat only half your sandwich, and save the other half for lunch the next day - we won't tell :)
