We at Taste Buds love food holidays. Tuesday, February 9 is National Bagel Day, when we pay homage to the doughy, delicious, carb-filled breakfast meal with a hole in its middle.
Siobhan and I put together a list of some of our favorite places to grab a bagel and also asked our colleagues where they like to go. We're sure we missed a few spots, so if you have a good go-to bagel shop, let us know! Tweet us @KnightfromABC2 or @TheRealSiobhanB.
A few of our favorite bagel shops:
- Greg's Bagels in Belvedere Square
- Sam's Bagels in Federal Hill
- Towson Hot Bagels (Towson, Canton, Timonium)
- Birdie's Cafe in Westminster
- Bagel Works in Bel Air
- Bagels and Grinds in Hanover
In other bagel news...
Thomas is celebrating National Bagel Day with the launch of its new Lemon Blueberry bagel. This flavor won a Facebook contest last fall. So be on the lookout for it in your grocery store.
Also! Einstein Bros. Bagels is offering a free bagel and shmear (cream cheese) with any purchase on Tuesday. And it gets better. Einstein Bagels will match all bagels sold by donating to someone in need. Each location gets to choose the charity of its choice to send the bagel donation.
Eating a bagel and giving to a cause? That makes the carbs so worth it.
