    NEW YORK, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- New York's Stage Deli will celebrate
 its 70th Anniversary on Tuesday, October 16 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
 It will offer a special reduced price lunch menu of its world-renowned
 overstuffed sandwiches.
     Owners Steve Auerbach and Paul Zolenge will serve their full-sized
 famous sandwiches-pastrami, corned beef, brisket, turkey or salami-for
 $5.95. The Stage's foot-long hotdog will be available for a dollar.
     The anniversary menu also includes 50-cent egg creams and fountain
 sodas and 25-cent coffee.
     The event will feature live Klezmer music throughout.
     By proclamation of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the City has
 declared the October 16 "Stage Deli Day." Mr. Bloomberg's proclamation
 acknowledges, "The Stage is home to what is surely the best-dressed burger
 in town-the 'Bloomberger.'"
     Max Asnas opened The Stage in 1937 and it has long been one of the
 standards of New York delis.
     Today, under the ownership of Auerbach and Zolenge, The Stage continues
 to be a "must stop" for New Yorkers and visitors-and one of the few
 remaining traditional New York delicatessens. Overstuffed sandwiches, the
 hallmark of Max Asnas' legacy, are the mainstay of The Stage, and named
 sandwiches honor celebrities from all walks of life.
     The Stage Delicatessen's 70th Anniversary Celebration will continue
 with other events throughout the Fall. For further information regarding
