The Starbucks in Berlin stands vindicated after I "raked them over the coals" yesterday for their lack of Triple Berry Cobbler Muffins. To my horror, a Barista Berliner called my bluff this morning by smiling and offering me a freshly baked Very Berry Muffin. "Good Lord, no," I replied. "Those things are putrid. They leave an indelible stain on your fingers." No doubt I'll be thrown out of the country by tomorrow. Meanwhile, seafood appears to be on the menu today at 7th and Montana as Genevieve reports that a young girl arrived on the scene with a giant, inflatable Lobster. Perhaps on my next trip to the Starbucks near Potsdamer Platz I'll ask for a Fresh Lobster Dinner just to see how they react ...!
