No access to Thanksgiving leftovers? No problem


If you’re a “Friends” fan, you may recall Ross Geller’s epically unfortunately named Thanksgiving sandwich “The Moist Maker” — a gravy-soaked smorgasbord of holiday leftovers that was as cringe worthy as it was desirable. Or if you’re not a “Friends” fan, you’ve probably encountered a Thanksgiving “leftovers” sandwich or two in your life anyway, because well, this is America.

Meanwhile, if you’re opting out of the holidays with your family this year (because, ahem, reasons), and craving the salty-sweet multilayer goodness of a turkey triple decker with cranberry sauce and stuffing, Chef Tony Maws has you covered.

The James Beard Award-winning chef will host an evening of DIY leftovers sandwiches at Kirkland Tap & Trotter in Somerville. On the menu: “We’re imagining slices of turkey, house-made cranberry sauce, aioli, cheese, Iggy’s bread, hot sauce, house mustards and more,” says Maws, who notes the offering comes at a first-come, first-served basis. The bar will also be stocked with a crock of hot toddies and Kirkland’s wide offerings of tap brews.

Best of all — the sandwiches are totally on the house. That’s right, just like your Aunt Dorothy’s annual “advice,” Maws’ delicious sandwiches are absolutely free.
