day 246: panera grand opening

A couple of weeks ago, we got our first Panera Bread here in Fayetteville.  We have been eagerly awaiting the opening because it means that we don't have to drive 45 minutes for our Panera fix anymore.  Plus, it means that Fayetteville is finally growing in terms of dining options- we have fast food and chain restaurants covered, but not much in terms of "fast-casual" (like no Chipotle :(   ).

So, on Thursday morning- not bright and early at 6am for the GRAND opening- we met Stephanie and Luke at Panera.  We got a table and then waited in the line out the door to order our food.  And it was definitely worth the wait!!  Ben and Lexie loved their gingerbread bagels and Steph and I had delicious breakfast sandwiches.

We ended up meeting there for dinner on Thursday night along with lunch on Friday!!  Glad to have Panera in town, and I'm sure they're glad to have our business!!  In fact, they now know us (or at least Ben) by name.
