When we were at a farmer’s market this weekend we met a couple older Italian guys originally from Brooklyn. I was wearing my Brooklyn Industries hoodie so he called me out. He said whenever he sees someone wearing something that says Brooklyn he calls them out, but sometimes they were just tourists.

We talked for a few minutes about San Diego and the various pizza places with a New York name in them. He also told me that Brooklyn Bagel in San Diego has the best bagel. Until I actually try it, I’m going to assume that recommendation is qualified since it could be “best” relative to everything else in San Diego which is most likely round bread.
