“A bagel is a round bread made of simple, elegant ingredients….Its dough is boiled, then baked, and the result should be a rich caramel color….A bagel should weigh four ounces or less and should make a slight crackling sound when you bite into it instead of a whoosh….All else is not a bagel.”

This NY Times article was one of the inspirations for our recipe. Our bagels are hand-made, so no two are the same. They weigh in right around four ounces, the size of a classic NY bagel. For the same reason, you won’t find any fruit-swirled or fancy-flavored bagels in our shop. Just the classics. (Our cinnamon bagels are a bit of a moral lapse, but they’re tasty and we couldn’t resist).

Who knew a bagel can be so delicious and come in so many sandwich options? The classic with salmon was magically delicious! We highly encourage you to visit Bagel Uprising!
Here's a fun fact you may not know about me - before taking the leap into entrepreneurship, I worked full-time in nonprofit development!💰 I'm still extremely passionate about that work and also provide fundraising and consulting support for nonprofits through Honey and Lavender. I recently wrapped up working with my daughter's school to help plan, market, manage, and execute a day of giving called "Mariner Madness"! Normally their annual fundraiser is a gala event, but I enjoyed helping them pivot to create a day of fun virtual and safe outdoor in-person events, leading up to a hybrid online auction! Here's a peek into how the day went:

🥯 Families came to the school's playground to pick up breakfast boxes, featuring bagels by Bagel Uprising and coffee by St. Elmo's Coffee Pub.
🎨 Familes could also pick up pre-ordered clay art kits by Kidcreate Art Studio
🪄 Families tuned into a virtual magic show just before lunchtime
🍸 Parents participated in a virtual cocktail master class leading up to the main event...
💰 Finally, the hybrid online and silent auction kicked off!

It was such a fun, successful day! Which of the Mariner Madness activities sounds the most fun to you?!

😍 brb, falling in love with this gorgeous bagel from Bagel Uprising 🥯 a small-batch bagel shop in Del Ray, Alexandria. Definitely a place to check off on your bagel bucket-list

📷: Bagel Uprising
The Alexandria Del Ray neighborhood is a wonderful close knit community which feels a bit like a small town. We started our day in Del Ray with an amazing coffee at Stomping Ground, a delicious bagel at Bagel Uprising, a little shopping at Kiskadee, met a client for lunch at Holy Cow Del Ray and then had the best frozen custard at The Dairy Godmother. What an amazing day walking around Del Ray!
Who knew bagels come in so many different ways? Have you tried Bagel Uprising? Delish!!!

Saw this and thought it was great bagel humor! Joy Drachman
Had my first bagel from you today....so good. And the salmon! Will be back
