BAGEl Beguile

Spotted by friend and graphic designer Carol King, who has a keen eye for detail, you really couldn't ask for a better example of a lowercase L than this BAGEl in NYC. This menu board outside of Maidre on 7th Ave in South Slope, Brooklyn also boasts pastries from BAlTHAZAR Bakery. Bonus points for this find, because the flipside of the menu board (click photo on left) features the same message, but with no improperly placed lowercase L's! Makes you wonder if the author who wrote the first side of the menu was fired and quickly replaced by a new employee who wrote the flipside. Also makes me leery about eating the bagels and pastries here.
