From World War II when the Atlantic City sandwiches were named "submarines", we will explore, in an interview with Antonino "Topo" Negro and Carmelo Marotta, the history of Tony Basile and Alfred "Fritz" Sacco who started the White House Sub Shop. From that "greatest generation" of Sicilian American immigrants, we will follow the intriguing story through to the present generation of Pileggi's and Nistico's who have preserved the legacy, cultural pride and savory flavorful creations of what are now still the greatest cheesesteaks and "submarine sandwiches" on earth. We will explain why they are still created every day in a storefront in Egg Harbor Township called Pete's Subs.
With the most extensive an exotic collection of fine liquors, wines, beers, seltzers and latest seasonal brews and premade party cocktails, Circle Liquor Store leads the way through the Jersey Shore Summer Party Season. Fabulous values on Sauvignon Blanc, Bachus hand selected Cabernet Savignon, produced under the direction of David Gordon from the famous Tribeca Grill in New York City, and a wonderful combination of both a red and a white wine produced from the grapes grown on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius near old Napoli. These are all specials you can enjoy while perusing 200 different bourbons, one of the widest selections of exotic tequilas, vodkas and single malt scotch's. You can check in with the big guy JM or the craft beer guy, Jordan and take advantage of the warm and wonderful hospitality at what is probably the best independent liquor store in the world, certainly the best in the state of New Jersey!
