A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Flanagan’s Solar Sandwich will help the tavern install rooftop solar panels at a cost of about $38,000.

The panels will pay for themselves in a matter of a few years by cutting the pub’s energy bill, Pohlman said, and they are good for the environment.

“It is a good long-term investment,” he said. “Hopefully it will start a trend around here.” 

He estimated that he’s just a few St. Patrick’s Days and good financing away fom his goal.

As for the sandwich, it comes on thick toast with tender chopped steak, provolone, cheddar and nacho cheese.

Don’t let the nacho cheese scare you away. The sandwich is a tasty must try. 

“It is pretty addictive,” Pohlman said. “Pretty unhealthy.”
