You can always come to Cleveland for some great NY bagels (perhaps even better than most NY bagels!)
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Nope, but they do boil them in CLE and they're delicious.
Fresh Garlic or Jalapeno makes them that much better!
I guess this doesn't really belong in this thread though...

On Devon, east of California. Ive been racking my brain to try and remember the name of the place in Pratt and California. I remember they had lots of video games on the right side of the store when you entered....
