Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, What is it about a meaty 6-inch Subway Sandwich that always seems to fill me up? Seriously, those sandwich artists  know what they're doing. You'd think it wouldn't be as satisfying as a 12-inch sandwich, but I'm telling you --somehow, someway, that average-looking sub does the job every time. Anything as happening this weekend as exhilarating as a 6-inch hoagie? - L. Bone Arena, Lehi  ---

L., As they say, "Never judge a book by it' cover." A well-balanced, well-constructed 6-inch sub can so do the job every time; you just have to know what to do with it. Here are some options for this weekend that are also surprisingly satisfying. Let's start with Friday's events
