The Toasters Will Die

Greg Gibbs, of the Chicago Bagel Authority, is always looking for a big bite of food press. It's the CBA's 10 year anniversary, and over that decade, Gibbs & Co. have apparently tried every guerrilla marketing trick in the social media book, from film fests to jingle writing contests an upcoming toaster demolition derby. But what we'd consider truly newsworthy is whether or not you, dear GB eaters and readers, like or dislike CBA's steamed bagels and daily sammitches. Comment away!

Chicago Bagel Authority's toaster steamroll will take place on Sunday, June 15.
