Starbucks Shapes Your City
"Way too much coffee. But if it weren't for the coffee, I'd have no identifiable personality whatsoever."David Letterman
Though tea is my caffeinated drug of choice, I fear David Letterman may be onto something. As I browse Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, or fight for a plug at a local Starbucks, I know I’m not alone.
Indeed, the daily pilgrimage to the Two-Tailed Mermaid feels ubiquitous.
Perhaps that’s why I had to click through the week’s fun map on Slate to play the “identify the city by the Starbucks locations.” (Or maybe I just have a thing for maps!)
So if you’re slowly warming up to your morning and have a few minutes to look around, check out the quiz for yourself here.
As a head start, here’s what you’re in for, the screen will first be blank...Then they will overlap the map, revealing the city...They will give you multiple choices so even if you're clueless, you can play along. Would you guess this is...
Honolulu? Or maybe you'll get this Western town...Portland? Kick on over to Slate for some morning fun. At least you’ll get three right (and I’m optimistic that you’ll get NYC)!
Happy Friday! Stay caffeinated friends : )
