What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | History's Forgotten Witches
Today's Groupon gets you an impressive allegiance of ingredients fused together on a bread canvas: for $7, you get $15 worth of paninis and more at Press Panini. With a menu stretching across more than 25 different paninis, there's enough variety to sate the most particular, living panini connoisseur.
Press Panini has created a wide array of sandwich options in order to hone in on any and all game-changing customer cravings (paninis start at $8.31). Barnaby’s teriyaki panini (grilled chicken, provolone, grilled onions, avocado, and teriyaki sauce) offers international flair, and the eggplant parmigiana satisfies any vegetarian seeking Italian mouth-thrills. The classic prosciutto, hot pastrami, grilled tofu, and turkey bacon swiss all combine nicely with hot soup and chips, a $12.93 deal. For the indecisive, a combination of two panini sliders will combine forces to sedate the most eclectic desires ($2.99 each). After the main course, be sure to leave room for the sumptuous dessert panino (with Nutella, dried cranberries, and organic bananas, $5.08) or the parching desert panini, filled with sand.
Located on Tujunga Avenue, Press Panini makes it easy for you to expand your taste buds. By going there, you'll be able to enjoy the panini without burning yourself on your makeshift panini-press fashioned out of two manhole covers and a super rope.
LA.com has set Press Panini as the example in teaching others about the marvelous world of hot, flat cuisine. The vegan food blog To Live and Eat in L.A. described its experience with words such as “amazing,” “delicious,” and “perfectly crispy.” Yelpers give Press Panini four stars:
History’s Forgotten Witches
If you’re a sandwich, being pressed between heavy plates is a dream come true, but if you’re a person, being crushed would be relatively unpleasant. Crushing, by way of heavy stones, was a common torture method used to make suspected witches and witch-sympathizers confess. Here are some of history’s forgotten witches:
Angus Grundel, Germany, 1485: Was accused of being a warlock by neighboring farmers due to his extremely beautiful, long, blond hair. Angus was allowed to live on the conditions that he would live alone in a shed, donate his hair to wigmakers, and allow less-attractive men to spit on him at their leisure.
Matilda Bodin, Massachusetts, 1692: Her fits of seizure were believed to be a sign of demonic possession and she was tried as a witch. Her first trial tested her ability to correctly guess the number of beans in a jar. Her second, shorter trial consisted of being thrown off a cliff.
Alexis Garver, New Mexico, 1998: A routine hearing for a parking ticket devolved into a witch hunt after longtime bailiff Bill Wood decided to spice things up and shout, “She’s a witch!” After serving eight years in prison, she was recently exonerated thanks to DNA evidence.
