paper bag history

I think that everyone needs a theme song and that everyone should be given free rolls of toilet paper when they get their taxes back.

I will take every opportunity I can to eat Kettlemans bagels before they switch over to Einsteins in May. Which also means, I should take every opportunity I can to ride my bike far and hard to harness carb energy for good, instead of evil. This folks, is why I ride my bike. That, and well… I’m cheap. Or, I’d just rather spend the money on bagels. And beer.

because I feel strongly about this….

I just went to kettlemans downtown to do some recon and get some breakfast, in speaking to an employee (cause we’re tight like that) he said that really, nothing was going to change… that they’d still be kettlemans, but owned by einstein/noah. They wouldn’t have to wear an apron or a visor and all the bagels and schmear would stay the kettlemans style. Mainly, Einsteins was interested in learning how Kettlemans makes their bagels and would be ideally, learning how to make and market a bagel that succeeds in a more upscale environment and discerning palette. So… I feel a little better about this whole thing now.  

I also asked him if I should call off the protest since I had a crowd of about 300 coming by around 2pm to camp out for a bit. 

So, last Friday night I went to see Neko Case at Edgefield and while standing there bopping and singing along, I look over and see some familiar faces to my left. It turned out to be some people I know know who fix my weekly bagel for me at Kettlemans! I mean, it maybe one thing if I went in every week and ordered my bagel and walked out, but I actually chit-chat with these people and we talk about stuff. It was so great seeing them out side of their work and outside of my breakfast break from work. And the cool thing is, they love Neko as much as I do and we all sang and danced along to every song. Here is Brandon and his BF being adorable with Neko in the background. Seriously, these folks made my night!
