Best Antidote to Living in a Red State

The Red Sandwich at Roma Imports

Living with our state government can drain one's spirits, but eating Roma Imports' red sandwich can revive one's faith in humanity. The people here take a baguette and schmear it with their special red sundried-tomato-and-basil-pesto mayonnaise. They add a generous layer of fresh, ripe tomatoes. And here's the kicker: They add their bright-red sundried-tomato gouda cheese, and heat it until it's smooth and melty and warm and RED. Bright red. Red all over, like the Tucson Weekly! (Oops! Shameless plug!) See red, eat red. Yum.
