“The Hebrew Hammer Comes to Bub and Pop’s
Chef Jon had approached me about changing the name of our Jewish Hoagie for sometime. We’ve decided to do it!
We are changing the name of one of our most popular sandwiches, the Jewish Hoagie – to the Hebrew Hammer. This monster pastrami, brisket, roast turkey, kosher salami, spicy mustard, 1,000 Island and Swiss piled with our Cole Slaw was featured by Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
We are changing the name to honor our son, brother, husband and father, Peter W. Taub, Special Agent, AFOSI, who lost his life on December 21, 2015 in Afghanistan along with his squad of 5 other service members.
Pete was given the name Hebrew Hammer after a sparring session between himself and Jonathan M. Oldhorse. They were training partners in both Karate and MBC (Martial Blade Concepts) when Pete was stationed at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota. I asked Jonathan to share the story. (more…)
Valerie sends last night:
“Outside Sudhouse on U Street. You would think that with all the conversation about #metoo, this wouldn’t be what they chose to advertise.”
Thanks to David for letting me know about Sudhouse’s positive responses:
I am donating $500 to CASS immediately AND we have scheduled to retrain our staff and myself. This is so sad and unacceptable but I do hope that you forgive me.

“Deckard from Mount Pleasant”
My partner found this card located in the display window of a newspaper stand @ 15/K NW. the trash was promptly disposed of – just a heads up.”

Also props to American University who is dealing with some similar nonsense:
“As I have said before, as an institution we stand against racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and anti-immigration. We believe in human dignity, equal rights for all and preservation of free expression. This sadly continues to make American University a target for acts of cowardice and bigotry that are disturbingly global. We will stand together strongly against these acts that are intended to frighten and divide our community. They will not divide us.”
