Look at these suckers waiting in line on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to get into the Starbucks Salon in Soho. Starbucks has really pulled one over on these sad consumers, wiping out coffeehouses from coast to coast only to start opening these ersatz dens of literature and music. Can you believe that there is a bouncer and a press entrance here? Can you believe the soundtrack on their website? The only positive side I can find of all this is the addictively brilliant portrait game they put on their site, which I spent thirty minutes playing with yesterday, much to Nathan’s horror.
