Cheers erupted at 7th and Montana this morning as the marathon, three-day renovation at Our Favorite Starbucks came to an end. Inside sources report that construction crews were working until the last minute, installing new lighting, doors, wall splashes, countertops and more. Manager Gabe was still sweeping up debris when I walked in. "Hmmm," said one Critical Observer, "The place hasn't really changed that much ... it looks a little more open." Be that as it may, it's nice to know that some things don't change. I couldn't help noticing, for example, that a solitary Apple Fritter remained in the Display Case. Perhaps the Construction Crew worked around it ...!
