— Emerald City Bagels, Deanna Halcrow's traveling bagel pop-up, has found a permanent home in East Atlanta Village. Halcrow is taking over the former Gravity Pub space at 1257 Glenwood Ave. SE, reports Atlanta Magazine, where she hopes to turn out 5,000 bagels a day. "We will have the capacity to add some bagels that we don't make right now," she told Atlanta. "Flavors like pumpernickel and rye. We're going to experiment with some whole wheat." Halcrow may experiment with making pretzels too, and she hopes to have the shop up and running early next year.
