Disneyland might be the happiest place on earth, but the Starbucks near my house might be considered a runner up. See, Starbucks recently had the idea to include delicious beer and wine at select locations. If you know me at all, you know that I love my Starbucks and my beer. You can imagine how excited I was when I found out the Sbux near my house serves both. I literally jumped for joy (see pic).
As our customers transition from work to home, many are looking for a warm and inviting place to unwind and connect with the people they care about. We’re pleased with the response of our customers to the introduction of wine, beer and premium food at several of our stores in the Pacific Northwest, and we’re excited to see how the idea translates to other markets. – Clarice Turner, Starbucks’ senior vice president for U.S. operations
So if you’re ever looking for me in Portland, don’t look much farther than the Starbucks on Couch (pronounced cooch – seriously). I’ll be the tall, sexy guy sipping either a gingerbread latte or a local handcrafted beer.
