Laurel Market: Avett-approved

Cello player Joe Kwon of the Avett Brothers is a major cook, as my colleague Helen Schwab explained in a story last year . You can sort of share his taste between now and April 9 at Laurel Market in Charlotte, 114 Cherokee Road. Kwon designed (by email exchanges with the owner) three sandwiches. Order one and you get entered in a drawing for a pair of tickets to the Avett Brothers' show at Bojangles Coliseum April 9.

The three sandwiches:

Breakfast sandwich: 2 eggs over medium, tomato, avocado, bibb lettuce and spicy mustard on toasted sourdough (yes, that sounds like a band on tour breakfast all right). That one's $4.95.

Sandwich 2: Genoa salami, pastrami, mayonnaise, jalapeno, sweet pickle, cucumber, red onion and cilantro on baguette, $6.75.

Sandwich 3: Proscuitto, fresh mozzarella, basil and horseradish sauce on cranberry walnut bread, $6.95.

You also can get the sandwiches at Laurel Market South, 1515 South Blvd.

Play on, Joe Kwon.
