National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day (1887)
- Although New York's Sussman Volk is generally credited with producing the first pastrami sandwich in 1887, the claim is disputed by the founders of Katz's Deli in New York, which was founded in 1888. Volk, a kosher butcher, claimed he got the recipe from a Romanian friend in exchange for storing the friend's luggage while the friend returned to Romania. According to his descendant, Patricia Volk, Volk prepared pastrami according to the recipe and served it on sandwiches out of his butcher shop. The sandwich was so popular Volk converted the butcher shop into a restaurant to sell pastrami sandwiches.
