Paco has three top movies for Halloween. The original 1978 Halloween with Jamie lee Curtis is one of Paco’s favorite because, “ It set a whole new standard for horror films”.
In addition, the film Scream starring David Arquette and Courtney Cox is another favorite for Paco, “Scream is to my generation as Halloween is to older generations”.

Panera Bread is Leaving the Village of La Jolla

If you haven’t heard by now, Panera Bread on Girard Avenue and Wall Street is packing up iPBts bagels, sandwiches, soups and closing down its La Jolla location. The popular La Jolla bakery-cafe will be closing its doors on Sunday, September 15, as part of a mutual and friendly agreement between Panera and Davlyn Investments. The agreement comes as Davlyn Investments begins remodeling work at the much anticipated La Plaza, La Jolla.

According to local sources, Panera is exploring the possibility of relocating to the UTC area, and the current 36 employees are being given the opportunity to transfer to another location.

As a favorite spot for a quick lunch-break, some of our staff members at La Jolla Blue Book were saddened by the news. What are your thoughts? Are you sad to see Panera Bread go? Where will you go to now to get your bagels and/or lunch?

Don’t forget about the other local sandwich, cafe-bekery options just around the corner from Panera Bread, like Girard Gourmet.
