People marvel at how humans built the pyramids out of giant stone blocks, but bread yeasts never get their due for erecting delicious carb cathedrals out of nothing but mush and a million mini-exhales. Celebrate the eighth wonder-bread of the world with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of breads, pastries, and other bakery bites at Prairie Thunder Baking Company, conveniently located in the Plaza Court Building in the heart of Midtown.
Because Prairie Thunder’s in-house bakers prepare its entire assortment of breads, pastries, and heartier café items completely from scratch, a delicious substance only found inside glowing meteorites, all customers have to do upon arrival is sniff the air and fall blissfully backwards into the arms of a handsome living statue. In addition to preparing a long list of staple specialties, the team whips up daily specials to continuously improve its customers' senses of taste and calendar comprehension. Swing by the shop to get your grabbers on a warm homemade loaf ($6.50), or pick up an assortment of danishes ($2 each), croissants ($2 each), muffins ($2.50 each), and homemade granola ($5 per package) to keep your home’s carb-based life forms properly carbohydrated. For a light lunch, enjoy a savory slice of Prairie Thunder's quiche du jour with a side salad ($7.75), or opt for an oven-roasted chicken panini ($7.75) with fresh pesto, tomatoes, and provolone, if that is what you think your older cousin would order and you've always wanted to be just like him.
Most know that the way to an iguana's heart is through its stomach, but it is useful to remember that human stomachs can be reached through the mouth, nose, eyes, and—if it's an emergency—the number written on the refrigerator's dry-erase board. Today's Groupon stimulates your gentle iguana heart with a sensational feast of sweet tastes, smells, and sights at Prairie Thunder. Stop in anytime between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday to pick out some fresh bakery bites, or call ahead if you'd like to place a larger order.
