Good Afternoon,

We thought we would send today's edition out once the physical breeze in Casper started picking up 😉

Anyway, let's get you the content you've been eagerly waiting for. Today, check out the maintenance projects our schools are getting, get details on the "Small Business, Big Christmas" party, and get some updates on the Mullen Creek Fire after the recent snowfall. We've got another one of Kelly's Reviews, this week featuring her Top 3 Sandwich Spots in Casper.

The weather (as you've been experiencing) is partly cloudy at a high of 69°F accompanied by a light 40-50 mph breeze.

Kelly's Review:
Top 3 Sandwich Spots

Hey again! It's Kelly here.

Do you have lunch plans yet? Hopefully not because I've got the top sandwiches in Casper and any of them would be the perfect lunch today!

Sandwiches are a very basic meal item and yet little choices can make the difference between a good sandwich and a GREAT sandwich. It's all about the quality and sometimes, the quantity. I don't want my sandwich to only have a thin layer of meat in the middle. A GREAT sandwich is stuffed to the point where it can't fit anymore and all of the ingredients are fresh!

Read on to see where Casper shines in terms of sandwiches.

Steamboat Deli & Outlet

This hidden gem in Casper has amazing sandwiches. Their specials this week are the Autumn Harvest (my recommendation), Smoked Chicken Baja, and Chicken Salad BLT on Croissant Soup: Wisconsin Cheddar. 

Come here for a choice of sandwiches that are fresh, unique, and filling!

The Cottage Cafe

You can't look at this picture and not start salivating from how delicious and juicy it looks! The Cottage Cafe has a plethora of sandwiches to choose from. 

This one in particular is the Tandoori Chicken and features grilled and seasoned chicken breasts, lettuce, cucumbers, and garlic mayo.

The Sandwich Bar

Okay, so I included a photo of their setup instead of their sandwiches because that's one of the most unique factors of their business.

At the Sandwich Bar, you get to build your own sandwich! You have a huge selection to pick from when working on your creation. All ingredients are fresh and tasty!

Which one is tempting your tastebuds?

The Cottage Cafe offers delivery through Wind City DeliverySteamboat Deli & Outlet offers delivery through Seamless (I'm not familiar with this delivery platform but might be worth trying!); The Sandwich Bar does not offer delivery but that is probably because it's a build-your-own style eatery.

Any of these choices would make for a tasty lunch. Try one and let us know what you think! Make sure you post a picture of it to your preferred social media platform and tag it with #OILCITYBREEZE in the description.
