· San Francisco
Walk into North Beach's Molinari Delicatessen and you'll spot the salami lined up with other carnivorous delights. The old-school Italian deli specializes in encased meats. People hail its salami as the best in California. Since you're in San Fran, pick up a loaf of sourdough for some delish Festivus sammies.
· New York City
You know that New York is in no short supply of amazing dried meats. But Katz's Delicatessan is an institution. The shop has been serving up salami since 1888 on the Lower East Side. Heck, its website still uses the deli's World War II slogan: "Send a salami to your boy in the Army!" You can also send a salami to your son for Festivus.
It can be difficult to pick just one meat market in the meat-and-potatoes town Chicago. A local favorite is Roger's Park's Romanian Kosher Sausage, which makes a mean garlicky salami. The classic Old World joint turns out a number of all-beef log varieties, and all of them are kosher. An honorable mention goes to Ashkenaz Deli in the Gold Coast.
