Bagel Love!

As busy as we have been the past few months, it was business as usual in the shop. We LOVE hearing from our customers. Here are a few notes we received that warmed our bagel hearts!

I wanted to thank you so much for the bagels last week.

A Response to a Customer’s Concern

Q: I was in Georgetown Bagelry today and was unable to buy a fountain soda. What gives?



A: I apologize for the inconvenience. While I would love to have fountain soda in the bagel shop, it was a tough decision and one I couldn’t put off any longer. I was hoping to have a rush of capital to totally renovate, but since…

Welcome Home!

We are selling fresh squeezed lemonade like there is no tomorrow! It goes well with fresh, homemade chicken salad, lettuce, tomato, and Swiss cheese on a whole wheat everything bagel, scooped and toasted. We use chicken breasts baked on sheet pans for our chicken salad. I’m sitting here thinking about this because I just saw two customers order it for their lunch after ordering both a bacon, egg, and cheese, and a Miami Burger for breakfast! Do these guys love bagels, or what?…

GTB is ServSafe Certified!

I’m extremely proud to say that our entire bagel crew is ServSafe certified. It’s a requirement of both DC and Montgomery County that at least one certified food service manager is always on the restaurants premises. This is very important. The things that has bothered me for years is the dominating mentality of only the people in the position of “management” were certified! The people that do a large majority of food handling and cleaning are not…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.

TED: Louie Schwartzberg: Hidden miracles of the natural world - Louie Schwartzberg (2014)

We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
