On The Bread Bowl

Drew Magary's funbag, on everyone's favorite feature at Cosi:

By the way, anyone who's been to Cosi knows they always have a bowl out filled with scraps from cutting their bread. You can take them for free. And I do. Any time I go to Cosi, I empty the entire bowl of scraps. I don't care if that makes me a dick. That's free warm bread. It's delicious. I'll also walk into Cosi, use the pisser, grab all the bread scraps, and then leave without spending a fucking nickel. Makes me feel like the sneakiest hobo in America.
I'm telling you, I could've written that paragraph. But it seems Cosi has done away from the bread bowl of late- is this true?

Depends which Cosi. More heavily trafficked ones have more bread scrap bowls because of higher turnover. The whole thing is really unsanitary, so Drew (or you, or whoever empties it) is actually doing everyone else a service.
