The words sandwich and repeat in the same sentence usually is not good, but not when it came to the Bellevue's fourth annual Sandwich Make-Off, a benefit for PhilAbundance.

The winner of Wednesday's contest was John Gulino at Bassett's Turkey for his barbecue beef brisket, which goes on the menu Monday (7/27). Gulino won last year with the turkey diablo.

The People's Choice Award went to Bain's Deli for its Juan Epstein, named for the Hispanic-Jewish character on Welcome Back Kotter because it's a marriage between a corned beef special and a Cubano.

Judges: TV meteorologists Kathy Orr, Glenn Schwartz, John Bolaris and DA candidates Seth Williams and Michael Untermeyer.
