It was built with every dimension (in feet) being evenly divisible by three (reflecting the three degrees in Freemasonry) with many being divisible by 33 (reflecting the degrees a member of the Scottish Rite can achieve.) • Shapiros Delicatessen - Since 1905, four generations of Shapiros have been making quality meals for our family and friends in the United States, buying vegetables from our Italian neighbors; sugar and beans from Needham Hurst, now NKHurst Beans, when they first opened in 1938; and corned beef from Sam & Emil in Chicago, otherwise known as Vienna Beef. Relationships in business turned into friendships. The quality of what they cook is equal to the integrity of being true to our word. A gentleman’s handshake. The best of the best. Your choice of lunch entrée as you go through the cafeteria line.
