Starbucks Appreciation Day

It’s today. I did not stop this morning at our local Starbucks because the drive through line was backed up to the street. Not sure if that’s the usual or not. But I took it to be a good sign. Will swing in later.

    The wife’s got a 12 hour shift today, 0700-1900, so we’re swinging by after work.

    I’ll tweet it and blog it tonight when we get home.

    I’m drinking my grande caramel mocha frappiccino right now. My glock is thanking me for letting her get some fresh air.

    Barista at the one I went to this morning said she’d never seen it that busy before.

  4. Canthros Says:

    I had a chai and a cheese danish this morning. Seemed busy, but I don’t get in there during the morning often enough to know.

    When are the antis going to learn not to mess with the law-abiding gun owners. This boycott of Starbucks is going to be one of the best business days of the year. I wish I had one near me. Thank you Starbucks for standing up for our Constitution, which is more than I can say for our Impostor-in-chief in the Whitehouse.

    Went through one this morning at about 0930 CST. Usual crowd of pousers, I had my NRA jacket and EOTech cap on. Got a largest (I don’t speak Italian) Cafe Moccha and left a $2 tip. Didn’t look like any other gun owners present.

    Hope it’s a good showing elsewhere.

    Went the extra mile and got my morning fix at SB today – they were pretty busy, but I don’t really know if that’s normal or not.. no sign of any protesters..:-)

    Bought a round for my employees (6 coffee drinks and a box of danish) and made a point of asking to see the manager. Told her how much I appreciate Starbucks supporting the Second Amendment and carry rights and let her know my purchase is unusual (I don’t drink coffee myself) but I will be back now that I know the company supports issues that matter to me. She immediately brightened and thanked me. She also said she would let corporate know.

    Had a latte.

    Don’t normally like their coffee, but wife and I went by at lunch, got a couple of drinks and a couple of gift items. And my venti cafe mocha is actually pretty tasty.

  11. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Had the Hot Mocha and a cheese Danish, which cost me $5.20. Crowd looked normal for a Mid-Week Morning, and the Anti-Gun Boycotters standing outside was Conspicuous by their Total Absence. Pictures will be at Weer’ds Blog later.

    There are no Starbucks close to me so I had to settle for picking up a fourpack of Vanilla Frappucinnos for for wife for St. Valentine’s day from wally world.

  13. trackerk Says:

    I bought 2 hot chocolates at the one near my house. There were a few people there at 11:30. No idea if that is typical since I’ve never been to Starbucks before. I prefer my caffeine in soda form. I paid cash, so I’m sure the FBI has been informed. But I forgot about the $2 thing. I did talk to the counter person about Krav Maga though.. so hopefully I still get credit.

  14. VaLawyer Says:

    I spent $17 in cash (probably triggering an FBI investigation) at Starbuck’s this morning on breakfast for the family and a yummy venti Pumpkin Spice Latte for me. It was 6:30 a.m. and fairly busy, but I think that’s normal. I’m not sure if there were any other gunnies there — we’re in the bluest part of Virginia (Arlington) — but I suspect the guy who parked next to me in in a Ford Expedition diesel may have been one.

  15. RedDog Says:

    Had a Caffe Mocha Grande in the store. Pricey! The place was packed at 10:30 AM but i was probably the only one carrying – concealed 1911. Paid cash (yikes!)

  16. Matt G Says:

    When I went in, I noticed a couple of stern middle-aged guys wearing vests, who were kind of unwinding with their coffee drinks. I fully believe that I wasn’t the only one carrying. I didn’t have cash on me (bad planning), but I bought $22 worth of coffee and coffee drinks. (Hey, my wife’s eyes lit up more over getting the Great Big Un* Iced Mocha than the two dozen tulips, when I came by her office.

    _______________________________
    *I refuse to say “Vente“. It’s ridiculous. The iced coffee is roughly a quart’s worth of fluid, so it’s way over twenty ounces. Plus, making the guy squirm when I used my Texas nomenclature was so fun, I did it twice. 🙂

  17. Charlie Foxtrot Says:

    Been twice today – and taking the sweety after work.

    Paid with $2 Bills. At 0’Dark:30 this morning, Starbucks DID look busier than usual. Saw a Deuce in the tip jar.

    Winning!

    Epic Flail for the anti-gun nutters.

  18. GayCynic Says:

    Well, stopped in…had a quad venti mocha for the first time in ages…dropped about $50 in product. Suspect I wasn’t the only one going a little wild.

  19. casey1911 Says:

    I didn’t do anything heroic like the guys who spent $50 at their local Starbucks, but I’m hoping that people like me that don’t usually go there and get coffee will make a difference. Was going to pay with $2 bills but they were all out today at my bank. Coincidence…..I think not. Read my blog.

  20. BornLib Says:

    Got a strawberry smoothie and a pumpkin scone, tipping with the $2. The smoothie was unfortunately rather underwhelming. The scone was good, even if it had a completely unnecessary amount of icing on it.

    I plan to go again today and try one of their sandwiches.

    dropped in at the Starbucks in town on my way home from work. All the parking was taken. Earlier in the day I spoke to both supervisors from the two local SBs and both locations were much busier than usual for a Tuesday morning. For a rural area with only about 9k residents and really crappy internet access for most I’d consider that a win.
