Guys’ night in Charlottesville is easy. Here’s how to do it.
First, procure muffuletta bread from Albemarle Baking Company. You will need to call in advance to request it.
Go home, slice your bread in half, and brush each half with olive oil.
Add Tasso ham.
Add provolone and emmental.
Stir your olive salad . . .
. . . and apply with more cheese.
Now take your sandwiches somewhere, slice into sixths, and serve.
The rest is choose-your-own-adventure. Play pickle ball, like we did. Or, play cards, golf, or another game you like. Or, if you prefer, talk politics, tell jokes, or discuss what it means to be a good man, a good husband, and a good father. Talk about your successes and failures, your friends’ successes and failures, and the guy who fell in the creek on the fifth hole.
Laugh. Eat. Drink.
