If you know Flint, you know Big John's Steak and Onion sandwich shop. It is a favorite for more than just local people. I have interviewed a lot of bands in the Banana studio who have told me, as soon as their tour bus was parked in the Machine Shop parking lot, they walk right next door to Big John's to eat.

I also know people who will drive up from Detroit, and points beyond - to eat at Big John's. As far as I know, they always eat inside, because who wants a soggy bun? That makes total sense, until now. You now have another option, you can request Big John's to travel - as in ask for your meat in a separate container. It's genius. No more soggy buns!

You might be reading this and thinking, 'duh Maggie, I have been doing this for years'. I did not know about this until this morning when I was scrolling Facebook. I saw the picture above on my friends page. Daniel Perez was just as surprised as I am that you can order this way. Thank you Daniel for sharing this, it is a definite game changer.

I will grab a Big John's sandwich from time to time for my boyfriend Nick after work. I live in Fenton, that is not too far from Flint, but far enough for the bun to get a little soggy. Not anymore - Nick is going to flip when I bring him his sub sandwich this way from here on out.

I guess you do learn something new everyday.
