My ideal weekend includes a few necessary staples: lots and lots of downtime, hanging out with all my closest friends, and — most importantly — bagels. There are very few things I love more than sinking my teeth into that doughy circular pastry smeared in cream cheese, and luckily, several chains are giving away free ones this coming weekend, in honor of National Bagel Day. So if you haven't already scouted out where you'll be going to celebrate, make sure to check out these 2019 National Bagel Day deals. You definitely won't regret doing so.
In my personal opinion, your go-to bagel order says a lot about you, whether you usually opt for sesame, poppy, everything, cinnamon-raisin. Maybe you like yours toasted, or you might prefer un-toasted. I, for one, absolutely cannot say "no" to a toasted jalapeño bagel because I'm — well — spicy. And whether you take yours smothered in melted butter, doused in jelly, or simply topped with a load of classic schmear is entirely up to you. That really is the beauty of a bagel, if you know what I mean, and since National Bagel Day is coming up on Saturday, Feb. 9, check out which of your favorite chains are offering the best deals.
