Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 128: Starbucks Closure!

I learned from my colleagues last Friday that the full-service Starbucks at 15th & H Streets, which was the closest location to the CPCA office, had closed a couple of weeks ago.  Oh no! 

This store got quite a bit of business from CPCA staff and meeting attendees, and the mini-store at the Convention Center at 13th & J Streets just isn't sufficient sometimes (not to mention that the lines get ginormous during large conventions).  Now, the closest full-service sites are on 12th & L, in the same building as the Hyatt Hotel, and at 16th & K, next to the recently-shuttered Monsoon Indian restaurant.

The only potentially redeeming aspect of this situation is the rumour in the online story that the 16th & K location may soon offer beer and wine.

Farewell, oh nearby downtown Starbucks.  Let's hope this closure doesn't signal future negative impacts on our stock holdings...
