Ladies and Gentlemen, a Starbucks is opening two doors down from my apartment building.
My landlord owns the building, and I'm sure he just made a pretty penny renting it out to them. Previously it was a general store that pretty much carried everything from cleaning supplies to electronics to weave (yes, as in hair weave) to mousetraps. I used to buy my lightbulbs there.
After what happened at my last neighborhood Starbucks, I'm going to be bold and lay claim to this one right now: THIS ONE'S MINE, LENNY! So back off...
Anyway, I'm going to be chronicle the progress of this delightful addition to my block with pictures, so keep checking back.
