In a crowded sandwich-eating world of hoagies, grinders, subs, heroes, and po'boys, Norristown's own zep flies somewhat beneath the radar. But in certain quarters, the intensely local, seven-decade meat-on-a-roll tradition is so closely associated with its birthplace to qualify as the Montgomery County version of Proust's madeleine. "You take any Norristown kid from the '50s and you give him now, 50 years later, a zep," said Jerry Spinelli, 68, a children's book author and Norristown native, "and he will be transported back to his hometown.

It's tough to say which cross is harder for Phillies fans to bear: the team's performance over the last two years, or the Veterans Stadium concessions any time. Loyalty tugged me down to Broad and Pattison last week. Previous encounters with the nachos, the pizza and the dreaded chicken dogs taught me to pack a snack. A couple of hoagies from Joanne's Food Market and Deli in South Philadelphia seemed suitable. But in retrospect, I don't think I'd bring a Joanne's hoagie to a ball game again.

It was a salt assault, according to Pennsylvania State Police. Officers in the Dublin barracks in Bucks County say that a 16-year-old convenience store clerk purposely loaded an "excessive amount of salt" on a ham and cheese hoagie ordered by a state trooper late last month. On Monday, they charged the youth with disorderly conduct, which carries a maximum fine of $300. "It may not seem important to you . . . but if you were eating the sandwich, it would have a different impact," Lt. Daniel T. Worst said yesterday.

In an attempt to stem further racial hostility and to set the record straight, Mayor Goode and some of the city's top brass tried to dispel rumors about the shooting death last month of a Southwest Philadelphia man at the Wild Wild West hoagie shop at 52nd Street and Kingsessing Avenue. "What we're trying to do is make sure that people who live in that neighborhood are properly informed as to what happened and what we're doing in order to respond to what happened," Goode said at a City Hall press conference last night.

What a difference two weeks make. The Wild Wild West hoagie shop, where the Korean-American store owner's son fatally shot a black resident three months ago and sparked bitter, racially divisive demonstrations, is now called Southwest Delight. Customers appear to be returning and police have disappeared. But protesters, gone from the shop on 52nd Street at Kingsessing Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia since Aug. 31, are not saying whether the reign of quiet is permanent or if they plan to return to the streets.

The first time I saw a sign in the Italian Market for Vietnamese hoagies, I didn't give it much thought. I envisioned a regular hoagie with nuoc mam - Vietnamese fish sauce - instead of oil or mayo. I've since discovered the Vietnamese hoagie is something with a personality all its own. At the Viet Huong Cafe, inside the new Hoa Binh Plaza at 16th Street and Washington Avenue, the woman who made my Vietnamese hoagie told me they'd been invented in California. Viet Huong's excellent hoagie ($1.50)

The Whitemarsh Township Planning Commission has reluctantly approved an application to erect a sign that one member of the commission said would "set a new standard for ugly. " The commissioners voted 5-1 Tuesday night to issue the necessary building and zoning permits to John McClelland of Oreland, the owner of 806 Bethlehem Pike, site of a proposed hoagie shop. McClelland's attorney, John Hasson, told the board that the sign would be 4 feet by 6 feet. It would have a white background, red lettering and a green border.

Here's a hoagie recipe dedicated to Fast Eddie, our former mayor and future governor. Back in the summer of '99, the folks at Wawa introduced the Rendelli, a spicy sub they named after the guy they called the "number one hoagie fan in Philadelphia. " The Rendelli lasted only a few weeks on the menu board, but while it was around it sure was a hit. Like all of Wawa's sandwiches, this one was available in Junior, Shorti or Classic size. The recipe here makes a Shorti (six-inch sub)

Gary Cohen's deli in South Philadelphia is a veritable hall of neighborhood fame. As a hobby, besides making up sandwiches, he takes photographs of his customers - kids and grownups - and puts their pictures on the walls. There's hand-dipped ice cream, candy and milk shakes. Cohen says he also makes a pretty good hoagie. So what's Cohen going to do when Arby's, the national fast-food chain famous for roast beef sandwiches, starts making submarines - Arby's name for a Philadelphia-style hoagie.

PAPAL PILGRIMS love Wawa sandwiches. About 1.1 million people went through security magnetometers during the two-day celebration. And, oh, by the way, Pope Francis thinks the women in Mayor Nutter's administration rock. These were just some of the takeaways from September's World Meeting of Families celebration, according to Deputy Mayor Everett Gillison and Samantha Phillips, the city's director of emergency management. Gillison and Phillips, in a sit-down with reporters yesterday, detailed what went well and not so well during the global event in Philly: * Unlike a prior July Fourth celebration in the city, cellphones actually worked.

Two hours before a brass trio from the Philadelphia Orchestra played the fanfare from Rocky and Mayor Nutter promised a hoagie for Pope Francis, the line to enter the Wawa formed Friday morning down Broad Street. "Congratulations," a man in a suit said, as he opened the door at Broad and Walnut one minute before 8. Enthusiasts clutching free coffee and $2.99 Shorties christened a shrine to Wawa, rushed to completion ahead of the papal visit. Even after Wawa condensed its stock of city stores in favor of profitable pastures in Maryland, Virginia, and Florida, a cultlike following flocked to this new flagship - the first Wawa in Center City to open in decades.

For a month now, spies have been slipping into a nondescript shop near Jewelers Row. Their mission, according to witnesses, was urgent. "Espionage," said Pam Bonfiglio, who has watched each glide down the long hall past her and her husband's jewelry shop, aiming for a tucked-away room with white walls. The spooks' target: an insurgent hoagie maker in baseball cap, shorts, and sneakers. A Vietnam War veteran, barely 5-foot-7. A Marine, 67, named Fink. According to eyewitness Joseph Bonfiglio, Pam Bonfiglio's husband, one pizza delivery guy infiltrated Fink's sandwich shop on 132 S. Eighth St. on orders from his boss.

Forget that Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is expected to miss next season due to a bone in his right foot being broken - again. If you go to a game, you'll at least find a new player at the food concession: Lee's Hoagie House. The Southampton, Bucks County-based chain has reached a deal for the next year to operate two stands at the Wells Fargo Center for all events - sports, entertainment and other, including the Democratic National Convention in July 2016, said Jon Waxman, corporate vice president of Lee's Hoagie House Franchise Group.

Don't let the take-out window and shack-like appearance of Ocean City's Sandwich Bar fool you. This isn't an ordinary fast-food beachside grill. Everything is made to order, from the excellent hand-cut fries and lobster rolls, to the crisp chicken cutlets and slow-cooked Italian roast pork sandwiches from the D'Alesandro family that once operated Via Giulia in Haddonfield. If that means a considerable wait, well, their slogan after all is a "long hot summer. " That refers to the kitchen's fondness for long hot chilies, of course, and those peppers are at their spicy best on the surprising "Uncle Charlie," a hot vegetarian hoagie that may well be the best thing on the menu.

IT WAS Arnaldo Cardona's first time at Wawa's Annual Hoagie Day celebration yesterday, and though he was dressed in a black T-shirt and dripped sweat, he didn't let the 93-degree weather spoil his mood. While others held umbrellas to shield themselves from the sun and fanned themselves with maps from the National Constitution Center, Cardona shimmied his shoulders and moved his feet to Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" blasting over the speakers to the crowd. "I'm hoping there's going to be a nice, big sandwich for me," said Cardona, 28, of North Philly.

WACO, Texas - He had a month's growth of facial hair, almost unrecognizable to anyone who knew him. When Shawn Oakman was called to Bill O'Brien's office at Penn State in March 2012, he was barely able to look up at his coach and his uncle. The highly touted recruit out of Penn Wood High was embarrassed. He was tossed from the Penn State football program for attempting to steal a $7 hoagie from a convenience store - the last straw in a host of incidents. Even then, there was some denial.

AN EMPHATIC cheer followed Mayor Nutter's proclamation declaring yesterday Hoagie Day in the city. "It's just wonderful to be able to say that," Nutter said while instructing the thousands in attendance to dig into the 4 1/2 tons of hoagies on hand. Wawa Hoagie Day served up free "shorti" Italian hoagies, drinks and chips from noon to 2 p.m. on Independence Mall as part of the Welcome America Festival, and to salute members of the military, fire and police. Included in the festivities, which is part of the weeklong festival, was the Hoagies for Heroes hoagie-building contest, in which the Police Department came out on top against the Fire Department, and the Pennsylvania Air National Guard bested the state's Army National Guard.

The owner of Primo Hoagie's franchising business will spend four months in prison for tax evasion, a Camden federal judge ruled Friday. In a plea bargain designed in part to avoid prosecution of his wife and save his son's house, Nicholas Papanier Sr., 57, of Sewell, admitted that he avoided paying taxes totaling $189,656 in 2006, 2007, and 2008. Papanier, who also owned Nellie's Provisions in Gloucester City, often received cash payments from Primo Hoagie's franchisees when they bought salami, provolone, and other deli items from him. Over three years, he made more than a million dollars, but paid taxes on only about half of it, according to court documents.
