[FHCx208] National Coffee Milkshake Day/National Bagelfest Day

Ice cream ahoy!

IT’S NATIONAL COFFEE MILKSHAKE DAY AND NATIONAL BAGELFEST DAY!

Well, it’s not the date for Bagelfest this year. See, Lender’s Bagels moved in to Mattoon, Illinois and proclaimed the city the Bagel Capital of the World. Ridiculous. Then they started this annual festival at the end of July called Bagelfest, which has had parades and performances from the likes of 38 Special and Zac Brown Band. This year, the festival was held this past weekend, but all of our sources (we shouldn’t just trust everything we initially read, eh?) told us today was the day. Even news outlets were reporting that it was Bagelfest Day and nobody was the wiser.

Before work this morning, SP and AK took a trip to Bruegger’s to get some bagel action.

Open-facing a bagel makes it take twice as long to get through and lets you enjoy each bite a little more. However, more cream cheese is likely to get in SP‘s moustache that way.

Red onion and lox are also not optional for most bagel outings.

This evening we had to spoil the amazingness of today’s bagel morning with a coffee-flavored something-or-other. Neither of us like coffee very much at all. Blame our parents? Could be worse. We could be weirdos who hate bananas.

We landed our coffee milkshake thanks to Conny’s Cream Cone, which we’ve written about before. We got a mocha milkshake which we consumed about 1/3 of. Coffee. Not even once.

They make really good ice cream, so it wasn’t all for naught.

Tomorrow is a triple day again: Chicken Finger Day, Creme Brulee Day, and Scotch Day.
