SINGING THE BLUES AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...

                             

"For Once You'll Want to Be Blue!"  That was the message this morning at 7th and Montana as Starbucks employees put up new signage promoting their latest concoction, Blueberry Frapuccino.  While locals debated the merits of a Blueberry-flavored coffee drink, Starbucks also gave us another reason to be Blue:  They quietly raised the price of a regular cup of coffee by ten cents.  Perhaps the only person who wasn't "Blue" about the price increase was Baby Helena, who just returned renewed and refreshed from a trip to New York.  It seems that, while she was away, Helena has mastered the fine art of playing Peek-a-Boo.  Too bad she can't make the price increases at Starbucks disappear ...!

So just how much is a cup of Starbucks best now? I want to compare it with the price of ours!

Price rises are never good news. Starbucks have never been cheap. I hope they can justify the price increase.

That's an awfully big jump in price! I went to an Einstein Brothers Bagels place for the first time just yesterday. Their coffee was better than our local Starbucks and they had bagels. I hope an Einstein moves in around here. --Cin
