... With a little slice of love.

In honor of the first day of school, here's a quick glimpse into the stomachs of the Bay area's future:

Hillsborough menus, Pinellas menus, Jesuit offerings, Tampa Prep.

I think it is damn sweet of the county to cut the crusts off the PB&Js for the elementary kids, but do the high school kids need that, too? Jesuit seems to offer just catered fast food, while Tampa Prep doesn't offer much choice at all, which might explain why everyone goes here. Honestly, the public school kids seem to have a huge leg up on the preppies, dining wise. At least until you start pulling foie gras burgers and lobster tacos out of their brown paper bags.

And, of course, the ultimate ode to hash slingers everywhere:
