Did you hear Starbucks is selling beer and wine? Not every store has ventured into the alcohol market, but some have.
Starbucks rolled out its Evenings feature to offer an alternative gathering environment to loud bars and restaurants. They researched and found that many people would like to grab a drink with friends at friendlier and quieter places. Rather than meeting at a noisy bar, they can now meet up at their favorite neighborhood cafe for drinks and small plates.
Not long ago, I realized that the Starbucks nearest my house was featuring Evenings and I wanted to try them out.
