At Starbucks nationwide

EquallyWed.com has proposed a National Starbucks Appreciation Day in direct response to the overwhelming national support at Chick-fil-A on Mike Huckabee’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Starbucks is on record for supporting marriage equality, and the LGBTQ community and its wonderful allies are ready to let its dollars speak for them on August 7, 2012 at Starbucks everywhere.

From our cofounder and editor in chief Kirsten Ott Palladino:

1. I'll support it because of its underlying cause, despite the fact.....


...... that I despise that overroasted dirt water they have the audacity to call "coffee." A soy latte there is tolerable, though.

10. You can alway have a Tazo tea and a scone.

Or, a smoothie.

3. that's nice but it's something they should be doing anyways

so if i go there it will be because of the rare case i was going to go there anyways. but not because of this.

this reminds me of some comments made about chick fila , how the food is good and service is great and employees are treated well. but isn't it one of those things people should do anyways ? it's not an excuse for bigotry.

5. Why should we respond to them?

I'm betting that event yesterday did more long-term damage than good. Why drag Starbucks into a similar situation? Just go get your coffee and don't make an issue out of it.

9. starbucks is waaaay over-priced

 

I don't have much appreciation for them. Once in a great while I might buy their ice cream-ish vanilla drink, but rarely.

11. We see how rw'ers respond, bet they don't continue to do so.

I think when your candidate is Rmoney you don't find lots to excite yourself. This is a diversion from reality.

13. cali, your post made me want to check the Starbucks site to look at their menu -

I had no idea they now serve hot breakfast sandwiches, so I'll be sure to pick one up on Tuesday, as there's a location directly on my route to work. This may earn them some steady business from me, as I usually go to Panera for my breakfast sandwiches!
