Local business accuses Mayor of bringing "egg rolls to a bagel fight" in Sens/Rangers bet
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson's NHL playoff bet with the Mayor of New York may have landed him in a little bit of hot water with a local business.
Hot, boiling, honey-sweetened water.
Kettleman's Bagel Co. issued a light-hearted statement today wondering why Watson is countering Bill De Blasio's bet of New York City bagels with Golden Palace egg rolls.
While Kettleman's is complimentary of the city's iconic chinese food staple, they argue the bet is a missed opportunity to settle the score between NYC-style bagels and Montreal-style bagels.
Kettleman's favours - and makes - the honey-sweetened water-boiled latter as opposed to the New York water-boiled alternative.
In the event "an Ottawa series win eludes us," the business is urging the Mayor to hand over two dozen of their own concoction.
