May 10 is National Shrimp Day. We served these tasty crustaceans with LuLu’s Saffron Aioli. Photo by Ryan Pike.



* May 5th is National Hoagie Day. November 4th is National Submarine Sandwich Day. And someone decided that we needed a National Eat A Hoagie Day on September 14th and Submarine-Hoagie-Grinder Day on October 9th.

†There’s National Blondie Day on January 22nd. Blondie is another name for Butterscotch Blondie. Here’s the scoop.


‡Some sources list March 22 as National Coq Au Vin Day. It may be a locally declared holiday rather than national. We’ve  double-listed it in March.

End the month by celebrating National Macaroon Day. These lovelies are from Mad Mac Macaroons, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
