New Starbucks serves wine: "New Starbucks serves wine
LOS ANGELES - STARBUCKS Corp next week will open a new neighbourhood cafe pilot store that will feature beer and wine, night-time hours and live entertainment such as music and poetry readings.
That Seattle cafe, called 15th Avenue Coffee and Tea, takes its name from its street address and borrows heavily from neighbourhood coffee shops.
A Starbucks spokeswoman said the cafe and any others that follow, would return to making espresso drinks by hand and sell products without the Starbucks logo.
The coffee chain, which has been slashing costs and closing hundreds of poorly performing Starbucks outlets amid a long recession, said the first pilot store is a renovated Seattle Starbucks that was slated to be shuttered by year end.

Woah ! Not bad. I think the Starbucks in Singapore might be earning money though. I see a rise of youngsters going there now.
I guess affluence means that a 7 buck coffee no longer hurts anyone's pocket.
Anyway, i got a few comments from my friends about the new Starbucks Coffee Jelly. And i drank it too once. It is GRASS JELLY ! Wah liao, gimmick lah ! All my friends agreed that Starbucks is prolly testing to see if AZNs can be fooled by this 'Coffee Jelly", then so can the Westerners. LOL. The Coffee Jelly was released in Japan ealier.
Anyway, i shd do this for fun, put 40 cents grass jelly in the Caramel Frappe and then treat someone saying it is Coffee Jelly, bet cha they cant tell the difference. (:
Anyway, back to work. TGIF ! Woohoo !
Oh yeah, got my allowance from the company. Damn pathetic. -.-'
