Quick, someone wake Guy Fieri!
Bub and Pop’s, the Dupont sandwich shop located at 1815 M St. NW, today launched a new breakfast sandwich packed with fried eggs, provolone cheese and bacon.
The $4 sandwich, which is also prepared without meat for $3, is the newest creation of Bub and Pop’s chef Jonathan Taub. Unlike a normal Bub and Pop’s sub, the sandwich is served on a smaller, four-inch hoagie roll. And here’s a free tip when ordering: Add a dab of mayo, suggests Bub and Pop’s co-owner Arlene Wagner.
The sub shop also now serves Vigilante coffee, hot chocolate and hot tea. Breakfast is served between 8 and 11 a.m.
The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) will soon pay lucky locals to take selfies.
Starting Dec. 1, people walking in the area between the White House and Dupont Circle can snap selfies in front of their favorite retailers for the chance to win a $100 gift card to that business.
To win, contestants must tag the BID on Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #GoldenTriSelfie.
Retailers in the area include Nordstrom Rack (1800 L St. NW) and Proper Topper (1350 Connecticut Ave. NW).
The contest ends Dec. 22.

We found Fieri.
The Food Network star was spotted pulling up to Bub and Pop’s (1815 M St. NW) in a black Escalade around 2:25 p.m. today.
Dozens of people gathered to watch the spiky-haired food fan enter the restaurant.

“Is this how Friday is in D.C.?” Fieri said while leaning out of car and snapping a photo on his phone. The crowd roared back with applause, cheers and a chorus of “We love you Guy!”
Fieri then waded through the crowd, stepped inside the eatery and disappeared from the public eye. While what he ate remains a mystery, plenty have speculated he’d chow down on a five-pound Lil Petey sandwich.
Fieri was also spotted earlier today at Toki Underground on H Street and in front of Carving Room downtown.

Across the street from M Street’s new TakEatEasy is another new spot that highlights fast, casual food at all hours of the day (and night).
Bub and Pop’s recently opened at 1815 M Street NW and is feeding the masses with its extensive list of sandwiches and pizzas. On the menu are items such as a braised beef brisket sandwich, an Italian hoagie, a bolognese parmesan sandwich, a white clam pizza and an eggplant caponata pizza.
The eatery even offers four types of pickle dishes, including pepper hash and giardinera. All of the menu items are inspired from the owners’ grandparents and their culinary creations of South Philly food.
Bub and Pop’s is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday from 11 am until 7 pm, on Friday from 11 am until 3 am and Saturday from 3 pm until 3 am.
