Pat 'The Reuben Dog' has been a featured sandwich here in Northern VA at The Celebrity Deli [a part of the New York Chain]. My Mom & I were devoted to ordering them every time we were shopping near there.

You have obviously found/or created a recipe honoring the Sandwich from Heaven! To all who have never tried this recipe, prepare yourselves for a mind bending experience!!! YUM. YUM.

Pat leave it to you to honor NYC while 'Holding Court' in Las Vegas! What a wonderful treat for a fun crowd dropping in for a card game.

Thank you for yet another outstanding recipe! LOL
