    Apparently, before the end of the year, a few stores down in LA will experiment with serving wine and beer!

    Thoughts?

    It's a brilliant concept. One stop imbibing. Get sauced in style then regain your wits by powering back a gallon of Pike's with triple espresso chasers.

    Sure, why not? Probably beer rather than wine. Wine depending on what they serve and how they handle it. Maybe they'll eventually serve good mixes of coffee and booze, too?

    Yup, that would be good.

    In the U.S. liquor licenses (apart from bars and places that sell bottles) often don't include hard liquor (beyond beer and wine), so it'll be interesting to see how sales develop and maybe they'll broaden selection as they go.

    I can see it now . . ."I'll have a half, triple caff double strong Domaine Comte de Vogue Musigny Cuvee Vieilles Vignes 1962 with a little nutmeg."

    Do we really need snobs of Starbucks caliber bragging that they know wine and shunning us that only really want a glass of Merlot with out sarcasm?

    "I'll have a caff double half triple shot of Merlot without any Starbucks BS and snideness, please." And a chocolate cookie, they look nice.

    There's a Starbucks just a 5 minute walk from my quarters. No pretense there. Just friendly service, nice atmosphere and a good cup o' Joe.
    Served in my favorite mug. :)

    I have one of those! They have this new glass out that is very cool that my daughter just brought home. It is clear with the logo engraved on it.

    Well I'm impressed you've got one of those mugs. I still get double takes. Definitely hardcore Galactican you are. AA
