What is in a New York deli?
The word "deli" is short for "delicatessen." By definition, a delicatessen is, "a store selling foods already prepared or requiring little preparation for serving, as cooked meats, cheese, salads, and the like," (source: dictionary.com). Traditionally, delicatessens serve cold and hot sandwiches (with a pickle on the side), soups, salads, and sides like potato salad, pasta salad, french fries, potato chips, etc. It's mostly the kind of food you take with you on picnics. There are usually chairs and tables so you can eat there, or you can get your food to go. The famous delis in New York City are traditionally Jewish, such as Katz's Deli and the Carnegie Deli. Their most popular items are corned beef sandwiches, Rueben's, pastrami on rye, matzoh ball soup, bagels with lox (smoked salmon) and cream cheese, brisket, hot dogs, etc. See the Related Link below for the Carnegie Deli menu. The Katz's Deli home page does not seem to have a menu, although it says that it does. However, in New York City only, the word "deli" has an additional meaning. It is also used to describe the small, family-owned convenience stores that can be found on almost every New York City streetcorner. These "delis" (which are also called, "bodegas") sell mainly cigarettes, lotto tickets, beer, chips, candy and soda, and basic groceries and household supplies, such as milk, bread, canned soup, salad dressing, condiments, some basic produce (lettuce, tomatoes, apples, oranges, bananas) some packaged foods like Hamburger Helper or Uncle Ben's Rice, toilet paper, paper towels, Lysol, aluminum foil...stuff like that. These delis/bodegas make most of their money on cigarettes, lotto tickets, beer, chips, candy and soda. Since their selection of groceries and household supplies is very limited, people usually only shop for groceries and household supplies at these places when they are in a hurry, or when the supermarket is closed. Since delis/bodegas normally are open 24/7 (or at least, until very late at night) they carry only the groceries that you really need, but can't get anywhere else when the supermarkets are closed.

How much is a sandwich in New York City?
It depends on what kind of sandwich it is, and where you got it. It could be anywhere from $3 to $5 (for an egg and cheese on a bagel, or tuna fish salad, from a diner or a random hole-in-the-wall delicatessen), up to $15 or even $20 for a gourmet sandwich at a trendy restaurant or fancy sandwich shop. Katz's Deli, which is perhaps the most famous Jewish delicatessen in New York City, charges $15 for a corned beef or pastrami sandwich (it should be noted, however, that a sandwich from Katz's is big enough to satisfy at least two people). The average price would probably be around $8 to $10. These estimated prices do not include extras (french fries, potato chips, side salad, soda, etc.).
What food is good for parties?
Deviled Eggs are always a delight to serve, Pigs-In_A Blanket, Buffalo Wings, Shish-Ka-Bobs, BBQ Spare Ribs, Fried Wontons, Fruit Salad, Mashed Potatoes or Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Thinly sliced cheeses and thinly sliced deli meats, finger sandwiches, cookies, chips, cake, and a vegetable platter with dip are some food ideas that are great to serve. It depends on what theme you are going for and what guests would like.

What are two of the same substances that have the same mass but different volumes?
First of all, there's no such thing as the mass of a substance, or the volume of a substance. You can have 0.01 kilogram of water or 10,000 kilograms of water. It only depends on how much you decide to scoop out of the bucket. The water itself has no characteristic mass. Similarly, you can have 1 milliliter or 1 cubic kilometer of potato salad. It only depends on how much you buy at the deli. The potato salad itself has no characteristic volume. If you measure out the same mass of two different substances, then the sample of the substance with the greater density will have less volume. If you measure out the same volume of two different substances, then the sample of the substance with the greater density will have more mass.
