Great Lake plans a sandwich/cookie sale
If you haven't been to Great Lake in 2012, you may not be hip to Lydia Esparza's cookies. Small and lovely and sometimes savory (I believe the rosemary flavor is referred to as a "biscuit"—i.e. a biscuit of the British variety), the cookies have become as much as reason to visit Great Lake as the pizza. And considering how much my colleagues and I love Great Lake pizza, that's saying something.
A good opportunity to try the cookies is coming up: On Sunday, November 4th, Great Lake will hold a sandwich-and-cookie sale. The sandwiches involve roasted and pulled Gunthorp Farm pork shoulder, a housemade barbecue sauce and a housemade bun. Salads and cookies bookend the sandwiches (which are available to go or to stay); pizza will not be available.
It starts at 11am and continues until it's all sold out...which, I'm just guessing, will probably be 1:30 or 2pm. Or, if people love the cookies as much as I do, 11:15am.
