Ugh! No! Why? Chicago Gets Fall Starbucks Drinks Early

We're sorry, but a Pumpkin Spice Latte is best enjoyed while wearing a cozy, military-inspired jacket and oversized scarf. Why on earth did Chicago fight so hard to "win" Starbucks' contest for the early arrival of fall drinks? Are you ready for layering? Are you, like, over dining on patios? We're not, that's for sure! We will fight the good fight sipping our iced coffee until the cows come home (or at least retreat to the barn for warmth). For the crazies who just have to order a Pumpkin Spice Latte, congratulations. We guess.
