Crisp Sandwich Day

- 25th October 2022 People of Dublin, get yourselves a takeaway crisp sandwich from Berman & Wallace for today only. Their recipe: “Tayto Cheese & Onion, Butter, Brennan’s White Bread… end of”
- 25th October 2022 It’s the big day! Want to celebrate in a pub? The Shirker’s Rest in New Cross, London, is offering free bread and butter with every bag of crisps (while stocks last), while over in Barnstaple, N Devon, Latitude 48 will give you a free crisp sandwich with a pint if you whisper “Crispin said so” (again, while stocks last!).
- 20th October 2022 Yesterday we went “QR bombing” in London to make sure tourists know about Crisp Sandwich Day and spread the word back home. We visited the Houses of Parliament (apparently there was some fuss going on inside?) and Trafalgar Square, then tried in vain to distract people from the horrors of M&M’s World. Follow the whole afternoon in the Twitter thread.
- 18th October 2022 With a week to go until the big day, @JimmerUK went on a pilgrimage to St. Crispin House to help spread the word.
