Deuces Wild in Chi-Town (That’s NRA Show #22)
You can sense it’s close. Yep, we’re getting ready for another year at the industry’s gold standard: the annual NRA Show in Chicago. It kicks off in just 10 days, running May 19-22, 2018 at McCormick Place.
This will be a special year for Original Philly—our 22nd appearance in total, but our very first as part of the Tyson Foods family.
As always, we’ll be there with our trusty mobile steak shop. Our customized booth is practically the stuff of legend—complete with full-service grill, fridge, cutting boards, heat lamps, spatulas, and anything else you need to make cheesesteak magic wherever you happen to be.
We expect the lines to be long…’cause they always are. But we keep ’em moving, and NO ONE EVER LEAVES DISAPPOINTED.
Before the curtain drops on the 2018 NRA Show, we’ll serve thousands and thousands of cheesesteak samples to carnivores in town for the big event.
Last year, we brought some 600 pounds of meat and accompaniments, producing 6,400 cheesesteak samples for friends old and new. How much in ’18? Not sure yet, but one thing we do know is that we’re excited to be back next to our old pals from Amoroso’s. They’re flying in from Philly just like we are, and we’ll be neighbors on the show floor.
Feel free to check out our recap of last year’s show.
And if you’re planning to be in the Windy City, be sure to come by to say hello and grab a sample (or a few)!
