The Brooklyn Bagel Blog was born out of an epiphany: I’ve loved bagels my whole life, and bagels are a quintessential emblem of New York City itself. The city has annual festivals celebrating anything imaginable. And yet, I was stunned to learn that a BAGEL-THEMED FOOD FESTIVAL HAD NEVER TAKEN PLACE IN NYC!
I knew in that moment of realization that a New York City BagelFest needed to exist - and I would be the one to make it happen. Thus was born the Brooklyn Bagel Blog. The Bagel Blog chronicles the journey of my alter ego, The Bagel Borg, on a mission to review and curate the world's best Bagels for the annual Brooklyn BagelFest, the first of which took place in September of 2019:
The mission to unite Bagel lovers from New York and all over the world in the most epic fashion possible. While COVID-19 has put plans for the 2🥯2🥯 BagelFest on pause, I'm still working hard to curate the best Bagel-themed food, activities, and speakers for the most epic BagelFest possible.
