Capriotti’s Opens in Rosslyn Today With Free Sandwiches

Bobbie high res

Home of the year-round Thanksgiving-themed sandwich and Joe Biden fave Capriotti’s opens its second D.C.-area location in Rosslyn today. The first 100 people in line at 11 a.m. will receive a free Bobbie sandwich (turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing), and the first 50 will also get certificates for free Bobbies for a year. (Which actually translates to two subs a month for a year.)

When the Wilmington, Del.-based chain opened its first area location in downtown D.C. in November, Biden dropped in. This time around, the closest thing to a White House celebrity will likely be the Nationals’ Presidents, who will be on hand to rally the crowd and pose for photos.

Expect even more Capriotti's locations soon. Local George Vincent Jr., who brought the franchise to D.C., plans to open a dozen more in the region over the next two years.
