Unless you were a super early bird, you probably missed this morning's giveaways at Denver's newest Panera Bread. Today, during its grand opening, the cafe gave away "mystery" gift cards -- worth anywhere from $5 to $50 -- to its first 100 customers.
That doesn't mean you can't still score some free stuff from the new drive-thru location at 2466 South Colorado Boulevard. If you stop by the store before 9.m. today, you'll get a free cinnamon crunch bagel.
The restaurant, situated in University Hills Plaza next to an as-yet-unopened Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, is Colorado's twenty-eighth Panera Bread location, its fifth in Denver.
It's open Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, dial 720-274-1010.
