What to Know
- Wednesday, Jan. 15
- A number of bagel shops are offering a free bagel with purchase
- Thomas' Bagels will pop by for a Union Station giveaway in the morning
Here's the good thing about that really good foodstuff, the bagel: It is always splittable, even if it doesn't arrive with a split already in place.
Which means you can share it with a pal, or spread two different schmears on the pair of halves before you, or save a half for later, because you know you'll have a mid-afternoon carb craving.
It's a royal foodstuff, in short, and it gets its deserved due on Jan. 15 each year, which happens to be National Bagel Day.
Local news from across Southern California
You can pick up a dozen for the office or enjoy one for breakfast on your own. And you can find a few money-saving deals around Southern California on the 15th of January.
