Likewise, way too much money. Sadly I do not have an app for that...I am a Blackberry holdout. I would reactivate my Startac before switching to a sleek, sexy, apple product.

I just go there everyday to take a break from work to look at the chicks. Once in awhile you get some cuties in there. Like this morning.

Brian, have you been to Valhalla on 6th Ave yet? Their Organic Ethiopian Harrar is really nice, definitely worth it if you like to make your own coffee.

Sorry to step on any toes, but Starbucks is like the fucking McDonalds of coffee...everywhere, and generally inferior to anything nearby. Definitely works in a pinch though!

I would give up hot running water before I'd give up coffee.

I'll drink both but know that what ever Starbucks charge per cup is less than Victoria Secret's.

That's why I always stick with double d's

Dunkin is my choice. Usually iced coffee which is double strength. Starbucks is drano for me. I use it sparingly.
