Kawika and the Minnesota posse hit a couple of places in Duluth recently, and were disappointed across the board.
The local Marcus theater has five buck night, and apparently they try and make up for the reduced admission with a giant price on a hot dog combo – $8.75 for a dog and soda. The good news should have been that the franks are high-quality beef weenies from Chicago’s Eisenberg, the bad news (beside the price) was the dogs had been on a roller/heater for so long as to be nearly inedible. Food outlets that use dog rollers should toss product from time to time. Common sense.
Duluthians were so excited about the opening of their first Panera bread store, that they lined up the night before the grand opening. The posse went for sandwiches.
It’s funny, Panera does make so many great breads, and do a lot of good in their communities. But they fall down on the ingredients used in their sandwiches, it’s been my opinion, and the posse came away feeling the same way.
