Bywater Starbucks Rumors Roasted


With coffee shops sprouting up on St. Claude Ave. as quickly as gutter punks and their dogs, the strip might appear to be easy prey for the world's ultimate gentrifying force, Starbucks. On Friday night, a sign appeared at the corner of the thoroughfare and Bartholomew St. that appeared to confirm the area's worst fears: the Seattle-based coffee giant was alleged to be "coming soon" to an abandoned credit union building. The news spread quickly, as this even would mark the worst thing since Hank's stopped carrying the real Four Loko.


Starbucks, Orleans Judge in Negotiations About Product Placement Fees


As a judge said yesterday, former model Dean Kelly has "serious problems." After being hauled in last August for harassment, he was brought in again in February on similar charges. This time, 12 female Tuluane University students came forward to testify and a Starbucks employee came forward to testify to Kelly's come-ons, according to the Times-Picayune's courtroom account. On Monday, he collapsed in the courtroom. But as the testimony started to come out, the only thing falling over was his defense.
