A Glass Of Wine At Starbucks? Why Not!

   I was recently in Chicago just for a day to pick up some stuff and I stopped at my favorite Starbucks just outside The Hard Rock. It happens to be open 24 hours a day which is great for me because I keep odd hours when I am traveling. If only the ones here in Michigan would stay open later. The barista recognized me and gave me an address to put in my navigation system. He said go there and I would be pleasantly surprised. I had a little time and decided to head on over. I didn't need the directions as I knew the area he sent me to very well. It was another Starbucks! No surprise here, but I went in anyway because I needed more coffee. As I am waiting in what seemed like a longer line than usual, I noticed a guy having a beer and the woman with him enjoying a glass of wine. What the?! Really?! What is that about? I asked the barista and, low and behold, they now serve alchohol at certain Starbucks locations after six. Even accompanied by some small plate appetizers. It was mostly local stuff from some of the nearby vineyards and breweries. What a concept! Yet another reason to like Chicago.
