    The Starbucks Game!!

    by frankcanfly Updated Sep 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As we strolled through the city, we created a little game called the "Starbucks Game".

    As you walked the streets, the first person to spot a Starbucks Coffee Shop would call out "Starbucks!". For each one you see you gain one letter to spell the word: S-T-A-R-B-U-C-K-S

    You'd be surprised how quickly you can get through this game!

    I won the 'Starbucks Game' !!

    Get Your Caffeine Fix

    by cwest03 Written Sep 5, 2003

    On any given block or in any given shopping center in Seattle you're bound to find one or more coffee shops. From Starbucks to Tully's to Seattles best, you won't have any problem finding a fresh, hot coffee drink and even something to eat.

    Coffee is a definite culture in Seattle. Starbuck's is the big daddy in terms of national recognition, but from what the locals say, you might want to try Vivace (321 Broadway Ave East). Their espresso blends are supposed to be the best.

    Learn how to order coffee if...

    Learn how to order coffee if you want to blend in.
    IE: how much espresso + size of drink + type of milk.
    (in that order)
    'double tall non-fat latte' = two shots of espresso, in a 12 oz cup, non-fat milk'. If you want to be annoying, you can say 'skinny' instead of non-fat.

    I recommend (if you like a good robust cup of coffee) a 'double-short-2 percent'. Or if you like it more milky, a 'double-tall-2 percent'.

    All of this applies to nearly any espresso stand, except for the lovely and fabulous Vivace cafe on Broadway (go there). Their coffee is automatically double on the espresso shots, so all you have to say is that you want a 'tall latte' or a 'short latte'. Sit in the window and watch people and the birds outside.

    Do we have culture? I dunno but we do things in the northwest that seem to carry other places, the coffee craze, if your in downtown seattle early in the am, coffee shops are packed and everyone seems to have a mocha/latte/coffee in their hand? Are we sick? yep, but I do the same:)

    In General I would say we are less formal then the east coast or south but if your speaking to a police officer, please address them profesionally(sir or officer) Sometimes being polite and patient can get you out of trouble for minor things.

    oh yah, and real men dont use umbrellas, just walk on through the rain. :)

    One thing that always amazes tourists visiting the northwest is how much caffiene people drink here

    One thing that always amazes tourists visiting the northwest is how much caffiene people drink here. A national news program said there are actually seven step support groups here, like alcoholics anonymous.... for coffee! It is not suprising that this is where the Starbucks franchise began, and if you visit, you will see them everywhere. There is a northwest comic book artist that talks about his addiction to coffee in his series 'Too Much Coffee Man'.

    The other Seattle-based Coffee chain

    Tully's - not as ubiquitous as Starbucks, but much better, IMHO. I like their coffee a whole lot more, and their stores don't seem to be quite as "corporate" and cookie-cutter.

    espresso yourself
