Happy Birthday Starbucks
Starbucks is 40 years old, which is weird because I never remembered Starbucks being around when I was a child...or a teen.

In fact I remember not knowing what Starbucks was until one day literally ten thousand Starbucks appeared like a mutant strain of alien virus to take over the planet with ultra expensive coffee. Suddenly, it was cool to pay five dollars for a coffee instead of a buck for the brown water that the deli on the corner served.

Believe it or not, Starbucks is 40 years old and they're finally giving back a little something to all the people like me who go into debt a little bit more each day - all for a Grande Soy Cinnamon Dolce Latte and a pumpkin scone.

Walk into a Starbucks between 2 and 5 p.m. on March 10-12, and get a free Starbucks Petites when you order any handcrafted beverage (while supplies last).  The petites are cute little mini treats that come in pops, whoopie pies and petit fours in flavors like birthday cake, red velvet and lemon.

On behalf of myself and my caffeine addiction - happy birthday Starbucks. Here's to many, many more lattes.

Hmmm...I'm sure it wouldn't kill them to give a free coffee between the [not-so-accessible] hours of 2-5pm.

I have never thought it was cool to pay $5 for coffee....never.

Does anyone edit these posts? Maybe a brief history on Starbucks would have been appropriate instead of writing about your ignorance.

Short order has really gone down hill recently. We need more from Klein and Nino and much less from the rest.

Oh come on, how cheap can you be for a birthday celebration. Come in and buy something for my birthday from my store and then I will give you a tiny gift. Get over it; this is why the world is in the condition it is!

just realized this post was on Clean Plate and not Short Order. Hard to tell with all the cross posting done by Doss

Chowfather - Yes, Starbucks is celebrating their 40th birthday - but they didnt enter total domination until the 90's. Sotheir being 40 years old may actually come as a surprise to those of us not in the Pacific Northwest.
