"Pay what you can afford"?? So, naturally, all the rich customers were paying hundreds for their meals, right??

PsyLord: I have a friend that was banned from a local Panera Bread store because she was being disruptive for asking a bagel that she paid for.

foxyshadis: GratefullyAlive: I know Panera....

I was the ONLY baker to GM in Saint Louis...

Panera is a mirror game...start thinking people!

It only Looks healthy!

that is all....

You mean a multinational corporate chain's food isn't actually created by farm wives picking and milling their own grains onsite while artisan bakers pull it out of the oven just as you order it? Who'd have thought. "It's not poisonous" and "tastes better than Wonder Bread" is all I'm expecting for the rare visit to Panera.

/Olive Garden breadsticks are also the only edible thing there; it's hard to fark up baked goods when the recipe is tightly controlled.
//Homemade bread can be one of the world's tastiest creations, but I have no patience for kneading.


A mixer with a dough hook could knead it for ya, or a bread machine (but YMMV quality varies).
I like kneading dough. It's like giving a sensuous massage to a sweet, quiet person you can eat later.

The article mentions they haven't seen an increase in crime in the immediate area. Well, duh. Who needs to rob someone when you can eat free and save all of your spare change to buy meth?

I read this as Pantera, which made it quite a bit more interesting.

So, basically, a bunch of stereotypical Panera customers and a bunch of stereotypical hobos wound up in the same place and now the Panera customers are scared of the dirty little people hanging around their free wifi.

Go write the novella you've been working on in public for the last six years somewhere else, then, dumbass. Maybe McDonald's has some free wifi.

Well I think I know what sort of online forums you hang out in when you're not here.

i upped my meds-up yours: Why actually change the name of the store with a big "we care" sign? Makes it look like a PR thing. Just do a stand up sign at the door or posters in windows. Farking American culture, we can't take a shiat without being self-promoting.


So people know that it's not an actual Panera, and that there are homeless people about. It's to be avoided.

AverageAmericanGuy: Wouldn't they be able to fix the zoning so charities like Panera Cares (and Goodwill and Salvation Army) are barred from setting up shop there?


Don't forget about IKEA too.

North Side of Chicago whining. It's not even a problem. I can't stand white people a lot of the time.

Mentat: "I don't see any more of that now than I saw before at all," he explains. "Before it was all relatively affluent neighbors and now it's a mix of affluent neighbors and folks that aren't as affluent."

I think I've found the correlation.


Indeed.
