The two Athens businesses talked it over on Twitter yesterday.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Thursday, Feb. 18, 2016:
Twitter might have just birthed a piece of Athens history.
About midday Wednesday, Twitter user @cheffayette suggested Bagel Street Deli and Kiser’s BBQ team up to create a barbecue bagel.
An exchange between the two restaurants’ Twitter accounts ensued, resulting in a mutual interest in the idea. The final tweet is shown below.
@BagelStreetDeli @cheffayette we can figure something out. Pork BBQ, egg, bacon, w/bbq sauce. Call it the King Kiser? — Kiser's BBQ (@KisersBBQ) February 17, 2016
Keep your fingers crossed Court Street, gastronomes.
