“You mess with my bagels? This is war.”

3428 O Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

This is maddening. Jack Evans is trying to block Call Your Mother from opening in Georgetown on 35th Street, stating that it’s “too successful” for the neighborhood.

Jacks letter to the Zoning Board, first reported by The Hoya.

You mess with my bagels? This is war.”

Another reader writes:

“Call Your Mother is coming to Georgetown. The store is currently zoned to permit the sale of bagels and cream cheese which the customers can toast themselves using a toaster in the store. But Call Your Mother is seeking a zoning variance to be permitted to toast bagels for their customers. This is the entirety of the argument. But watch the local NIMBYs act like a bagel store is the apocalypse at the Board of Zoning public meeting last night. Congratulations. This is the reason Georgetown is dying.”
