Black Seed Bagels is celebrating its 9th birthday this week and next with their favorite girls on grass - the hens at Vital Farms, their purveyor of fresh, pasture-raised eggs.
To kick things off, these best buds are popping up around NYC the evening of Thursday 4/20 to give away 420 free bacon, egg & cheese sandwiches made fresh on the spot with Vital Farms pasture-raised eggs. Black Seed has decked out its classic NY coffee cart and will be embarking on a late night BEC crawl starting at Ray’s Bar (8pm, 177 Chrystie St.), Sauced (10pm, 331 Bedford Ave, BK) and Elsewhere (midnight, 599 Johnson Ave, BK). (Egg & cheese sandwiches will also be available. First come, first served.)

Don’t worry if you miss the pop-ups. Black Seed Bagels *also* teamed up with Vital Farms to offer $5 egg sandwiches in all of its shops, all week long starting next Monday, 4/24 through Friday, 4/28. Guests can choose from one of six egg sandwiches, from a classic BEC to a BOCA (egg, cheese, tomato and avocado). (In-store only, limit 2 sandwiches per customer, no customizations.)
Those not in New York can also get in on the fun and make their own bagel egg sandwich at home: anyone who orders one dozen Black Seed bagels via DoorDash national between Monday, 4/24 - Friday, 4/28 will receive a voucher for a free carton of Vital Farms eggs with their bagels.
