Have You Tried The Sandwich Named After Kid?
I have to say...I am delicious
I’ve been in radio a very long time, since I was 13 years old to be exact, and a few cool things have happened along the way. One of my absolute favorites is having a sandwich named after me.
This all started years ago at a place anyone from Bangor will remember called, Jimmy V’s. Jimmy Vardamis had various businesses across town, but he owned a small lunch spot on 621 Hammond Street. That location has since been a Subway franchise, The Whoopie Pie Café, and currently is fabulous place called Kebab Den. But back in the day when he owned it he was kind enough to create the “Kid Kelly”, after yours truly.
The “Kid Kelly” is a turkey melt with Russian dressing and strips of bacon, and it’s pretty damn tasty. When Jimmy V left his location, Bangor High School and Husson University football legend, Coach Gabby Price, took my sandwich and put it on his menu at his business, The Corner Store, which is just down the street at 575 Hammond. All of this is even more cool because it’s the neighborhood where I have lived for many years, so I really feel like the king of the west side of Bangor, which is total BS, considering that Stephen King’s house is just a stones throw away on West Broadway, and yeah, I hear that dude is pretty famous.
So if you are ever in that part of Bangor, stop by and give it a try!
