After road testing alcohol sales in cities like Seattle and Chicago, the coffee giant is planning to roll out more alcohol options in thousands of its urban-area stores. Boozy offerings, like beer and wine, will be available after 4 p.m. as part of the "Starbucks Evenings" menu, as will fancy dishes, like bacon-wrapped dates and truffle mac 'n' cheese. We've come a long way from Frappuccinos, guys.
This new menu could really change the game when it comes to coffee-shop first dates. (Bloomberg)
