Schmear 'em! Delicatessens in Baltimore and San Francisco make Super Bowl bet

The owners of Jewish-style delicatessens in San Francisco and Baltimore have placed a friendly wager on the Super Bowl game. The losing deli will donate $500 to a charity of choice in the winning team's city.

The bet between Miller's East Coast Delicatessen in San Francisco and Attman's Deli in Baltimore was the idea of Robby Morgenstern of Miller's, who made, and won, a similar bet with a Detroit deli owner on the outcome of the 2012 World Series.

The Baltimore deli's owner, Marc Attman, accepted the bet with Miller's.

"We’re competitive in the deli industry but also very committed to giving back to the community," Attman said. "We thought this would be a fun way to show our confidence in the Ravens, while helping those in need at the same time." Attman's has operated a booth at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium since 2006.

A fixture on Baltimore's Corned Beef Row since 1915, Attman's has been owned and operated by the Attman family since 1915. The deli will open a second location this April in Potomac.
