Starbooze: Starbucks Going National With Alcohol Sales

What's better than coffee? Coffee with some good old-fashioned alcoholism thrown in there! PARTY DOWN! Important note: it doesn't count as alcoholism if you're a writer, because science.

Starbucks, apparently agreeing with this truism that I just made up, has decided to go national with alcohol sales after testing it in specific markets. They plan to expand from the current 26 stores to 40 by the end of the year, and to branch out to over 1,000 stores "eventually."

Sadly, while these sales include beer and wine, they do not yet include hard liquor, so for those fantasizing about an Irish Caramel Macchiato or an Irish Gingerbread Latte or an Irish Kids Size Strawberry Frappuchino (aren't ethnic stereotypes fun?!), we're not quite at that point yet. We can but dream.
