Locals only. No fast food. Hot dogs, wraps, and tacos are not sandwiches. These are but a few of the concrete rules for the Memphis Sandwich Clique, a public Facebook group.

The rest is as simple and delicious as you might expect. Get a (local) sandwich. Take a photo of it. Describe it. Post it to the group and "let the best sammy win."

The group was founded in late July but boasted 8,833 members as of Monday. Those members help each other find the city's dankest sandwiches (Phillies, Cubans, BLTs, reubens, clubs, burgers, and more). Sam's Deli, Rawk'n Grub, Old Whitten Tavern, and Elwood's Shack are easy favorites of the group.

A Classic Festival Weekend

Your weekend social feeds most certainly showed some of the action from the steamy-but-fun Southern Heritage Classic or Cooper-Young Festival. Something like this, eh?
