Strange Grounds, the funky coffeehouse known for its open-mike night, is now closed on South Broadway. But there's a sign on the door promising the arrival of Samiches in 2016. The sign also notes that the new eatery will serve gourmet sandwiches, pastas, salads, soups and homemade desserts.
More pressing is whether or not this is the correct spelling of "samiches" — as most scholarly sources prefer "sammiches."
