In the meantime, a lengthy chain link fence encircles almost everything, leading to tears from children and a string of swear words from an Area Dad, who helpfully pointed out that at least “the fucking carousel” was an option as consolation.

Goofy Mervyn’s Heights Location Claims Another: RIP Geary and Masonic (Sort Of) Panera Bread Chain Store – 2015 to 2018

I just noticed that this place shut down.

I thought it was a bakery at first.

IDK anybody who actually ate something from here.

If you plopped me down at the Lucky Penny (also RIP) parking lot that’s actually at Geary and Masonic and gave me two minutes to run across traffic and around Target and through a loooooong tunnel to get to the door of E106, well I think I could make it.

Anyway, RIP Panera.
