Weekend Diversion: Tina Fey Stirs Up Chicago Sandwich Debate

By Anna Deem in News on Oct 23, 2010 5:45PM

Before she created 30 Rock or even wrote and starred on Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey was a member of Chicago's Second City group, which means she definitely knows her deep dish from her thin crust. In a new 30 Rock web exclusive, Fey reads a letter from a future Columbia College Chicago student, and answers the question: "What are your favorite restaurants in Chicago?" Fey lists off the Athenian Room on Webster, the Golden Apple diner, and then stirs up a bit of a Chicago sandwich debate by remarking that she likes Jimmy John's better than Potbelly. Gasp!
