My friend and fellow UM grad Jon and his business partner opened a bagel shop earlier this year in Philadelphia called Philly Style Bagels. Yesterday, Bon Appetit magazine released its list of the five best new sandwiches in America, and...
Sandwich of the Year: The Classic Lox Sandwich
Philly Style Bagels, Philadelphia
The truth is, any combination of ingredients you put between these crazily flavorful bagels—be it hummus, tuna, or bacon-lettuce-and-tomato—will be life-changing. At the risk of starting an inter-city rivalry with New York, we think Collin Shapiro and Jonathon Zilber are making some of the best bagels in the country. What makes them that great? They’re fermented in small batches, hand-rolled, boiled in local Yards beer (that’s what makes them Philly style), and baked on wood planks. The result is a smallish, pleasantly dense, and chewy bagel with a superior crust. They say a sandwich is only as good as the bread you use. We couldn’t agree more.
This couldn't have happened to a nicer, chiller dude and, speaking from experience, the award is richly deserved. Go Blue, crushing the competition in all fields! Any MGoBloggers in Philly are advised to get your asses to Fishtown if you haven't already.
Simple premise today for our (potentially last of this OT season? Mods? Was there a "Meta, OT" post that I missed?) car discussion: What's your favorite Pop-Culture Car Reference?
Do you, like Slowhand, get off on '57 Chevys?
If you're a Nelly fan are you Team 'Slade or Team Range Rover?
Was the Bad Boys' 911 the greatest move Car Casting ever? Or was Iron Man's R8 too perfect? Did you (do you?) Still want a General Lee? Or did you used to have a Trans Am and make people call you Bandit?
What's your favorite pop-culture car tie in and why?
Hey fellow people of MGoBlog, I was wondering if anyone has seen or heard about a Michigan Bike Helmet. Got a new bike today, blah blah, but my helmet is 8 years old. Something like this:
but navy blue it has the maize wings painted. Or even a place/website that does custom paintjobs.
11 AM presser.
From a press release: Friday, August 12 will be his final baseball game.
I've noticed that any time someone asks " what are your other hobbies/interests" that several of us list "cooking." I've been on the fence with trying one of the many options out there for meal kit delivery and I'm just curious if any of you have any advice/feedback? I'm leaning towards Blue Apron right now with HelloFresh in a close second. The reviews are close, but C'mon.. it's got "blue" in the name.
If this is too off topic and we need to get back to apparel, any updates on the release of the Jumpman apron would be much aprreciated!
