Saddened to learn via Crosscut that 15th. Ave Tea & Coffee is being re-renamed Starbucks. (If you look at the Street View for Google Maps, it's still showing Starbucks from before they renamed it as part of a test.)

The article from Crosscut, is, um... weird... treats Starbucks as a 14-year-old girl that the writer seems to fancy. Hey Ronald Holden, you're creepy!
