    “To over 7,000 Washingtonians” – I guess they’re pretty good at spotting a local vs a tourist…

    LIES. Just came back, got there around 9, there wasn’t even a table out front where people *could* have been giving things away if we got there too late.

    • Yikes – just emailed their PR people to see what’s up!

      • They now say it’s from 8-9am – apologies!!

          SIGH. Ah well, they drummed up business for their competitor Le Pain Q. , which my colleague and I went to after missing free stuff ;)

      No coffee or food, free or otherwise to be found at 12:30 today… :’-(
