Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 6, 9:12 AM

Years ago before the whole "Marriage Equality vs. Chick-Fil-A" snafu, I was outside of Baltimore on a road trip.  As my family pulled of the interstate there were two options food options: Panera Bread and Chick-Fil-A.  My 3 kids couldn't care less about Foccacia, so I took them to Chick-Fil-A while me wife got something at Panera.  Although these establishment were adjacent to each other they occupied radically different social spaces and distinct ethnic networks and speculated that the political affiliations of customers would also be difference.  This observation is supported by the data in this article that shows that certain restaurants attract (cater to?) a clientele that is either more conservative or more liberal.
