Edible Nerdiness - Mario in Cans at Whole Foods

By Anthony Todd in Food on May 11, 2011 3:20PM

2011_5_11Mario.jpg Sometimes, we love Whole Foods - if only because of the preponderance of cute, nerdy vegans who work there. We came across this yesterday at the South Loop Whole Foods, near the frozen section, and it made our day. If this was a corporate initiative, we don't want to know about it - we prefer to think of an art student sheepishly going to their manager and begging to make a crazy stack of cans. Especially since we're in the middle of a Mario needlepoint project(no, really), we're operating on the same wavelength.
