San Jose City Takes Back the Viet Heritage Garden Project

Hillary Clinton Visits Lee's Sandwiches for Lunch

While taking a break from her presidential primary campaign in Nevada, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to stop by a Lee's Sandwiches in Las Vegas for lunch.  She  of course drew quite a crowd and well wishers the minute she entered the store.  The manager of the store said that her staff told him an hour in advance that she is coming for lunch.

She ordered a grilled pork sandwich and a Lee's coffee.  For dessert, she got a Deli Manjoo.
