PLUM LOCO ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Fruit Loop, a local loon who seemed to be on continuous loop last week when he made the scene at Our Favorite Starbucks shopping for fruits and vegetables. Indeed, he spent more than a half-hour examining the meager "produce section" and slowly, painstakingly grilling the baristas on each item. I wasn't there at the time, but Genevieve sent me a photo and filled me in on the details this morning. "Barista Amanda deserves a Halo for taking care of this guy," Genevieve said. Apparently, the man grew increasingly agitated and threw a Fruit Cup at one of the new Baristas. Amanda stepped in, calmed him down, and helped him fill his shopping cart with glorious Starbucks fruit. She's a real Peach, that Amanda. As for the Fruit Loop, he's just plain Bananas ...!

He THREW a fruit cup AT a Barista? What must one do to get thrown out of a Starbucks? I'd say this Fruit has gone bad. Toss. -Cin
PS: Nice work, Genevieve.

Starbucks sells fruit?

Hi Paula, Rose -- Starbucks sells a small amount of fruit (bananas and a fruit cup) and vegetables (a small veggie plate). That's what makes it so strange that the Fruit Loop would spend a half-hour deliberating over what to get.

He was back for more groceries on Friday and left with 3 bags! As he was leaving someone kindly pointed out to him that there was a grocery store up the street!
