Last May contributor John Delaney wrote a post for our website, “Long Island Egg Sandwich: A Breakfast Tradition.” As one who regularly grabs a BEC (local moniker for bacon, egg and cheese) from my neighborhood deli, I certainly didn’t expect the post to go viral. Social media virality is still a bit hard to track, but we believe nearly a half million views on our Facebook page alone qualifies our iconic egg sandwich story as viral. I guess one could say that #ELIEggSand is trending.
