Bagel Wars in North America have been ongoing for decades, if not centuries, beginning with the first settlements of Jewish immigrants in New York and Montreal. While the central conflict may be rooted in a divergence between the preparation methods in New York and Montreal, a more fine-grain problem arises inside the boundaries of the cities themselves.
Every Monday is Bagel Monday in my office. By around 9:30 a.m., several boxes of fresh bagels magically appear in the center kitchen. (I mean, I assume someone puts them there, but it still feels like magic every time.)
