Celebrated on March 14th. In 2013, the city of Omaha, considered to be the birthplace of the Reuben Sandwich, declared March 14th as National Reuben Sandwich Day.
What is the origin of the Reuben Sandwich?
According to legend, Reuben Kulakofsky (1873-1960), a Jewish Lituanian-born wholesale grocer, created the sandwich for his weekly poker game in the late 1920s. It's actually a very entertaining back-story, and we are intrigued that the city of Omaha legally declared this an official holiday.
