Alex Manley bagel pop-up at Small Victory cocktail bar Sunday

An afternoon and evening bagel pop-up at a cocktail bar? Why not? Chef Alex Manley, formerly of Bufalina and the McGuire Moorman Hospitality empire continues her bagel pop-up series Sunday at the intimate cocktail bar Small Victory.

Manley will serve a variety of her boiled and wood-fired bagels, including a whole wheat bagel made from grains milled at Barton Springs Mill, along with housemade schmears and cured and smoked fish from Joseph Galindo of Lambert’s. Making this pop-up a little different will be the drink program. Small Victory wizard Josh Loving will pair the creations with a slew of drink options, including vodka & aquavit, Trader Vic Rum punch and Bloody Marys. The bar will also serve sparkling wine & rosé at happy hour prices.

The pop-up runs from 3 to 9 p.m. at the bar tucked into the parking garage (old schoolers will remember it as the old Mike’s Pub) at 108 E. Seventh St.
