Beer and Coffee and Really Tight Pants – A Dream Come True?

Now you can get wasted at Starbucks….ish. “Stealth” Starbucks are transforming shop under a new name starting in one of Seattle’s most Seattle-like areas of town, Capitol Hill (think super skinny pants on dudes, tight tees, and an intense level of west-coast relaxation that morphs into pretention). Starbucks wants to come off as more of a neighborhood joint. Hmmm… Starbucks….I think these no-joke-coffee-ers are gonna notice!

So why should you, awesome KegWorks blog reader, care? Well – these stealth Starbucks are serving beer! Oh yeah! And wine too. Having lived in Seattle, I know that in Seattle (and my world too) there is nothing holier than good coffee than good beer (Well, maybe Trader Joes…moment of silence). I think that the concept could do well in a town where a crazy night out could quite possibly involve a coffee shop.

    Jm – I’m all for spirits in coffee shops – beer, liquor, whatever. I loved that Acoustic Coffee in Portland ME served alcohol… so does Cafe Aroma on Elmwood!

    I wonder if this means Dunkin Donuts will offer beer in the future?

    @Brian: Sounds great! They could call it “Drunkin’ Donuts”!
