Blimpie's is the only sandwich shop in the world awesome enough to have originated in Hoboken, NJ. A true Jerseyan can defend that there are differences between a Blimpie and a typical "sub" such as one purchased at Subway, such as the differences in bread used and the Blimpie's superior quality. You do NOT buy a sub at Blimpie's, you buy a BLIMPIE. On an interesting note, when they first opened on Washington St. back in the 60's they gave away goldfish. Unfortunately the little fishies usually would not stay alive for more than a few days. They don't do that anymore, too bad.
Blimpie's is the only nationwide sandwich chain I will eat at, because I love Hoboken and hate Boston.
This occurs when a female placed several tablets of alkaseltzer in 'bottom' then an uncapped cola beverage is inserted and the whole affair is turned upside down draining the contents of the bottle onto the waiting alkaseltzer. Bloating and 'blimping' occurs immediately following. The recipient enjoys a luke warm beverage 'al a blimpy'.
Damn, that's the freshest blimpy I've had in hours!!
