Happy Valentine’s Day (and Friday the 13th)

Happy Valentine’s Day (and Friday the 13th)

Good afternoon, Dear Readers:

If you haven’t overloaded on chocolate yet, here’s a quick post I thought I should let you know about (and I just thought to let you know five minutes ago.)

Longtime readers of this blog know that I’m a big fan of Starbucks. Being a dabbler in advertisiting, I know that they respond to people’s tastes. Well, lots of couples have met in Starbucks, and many have married–I used to work with a bloke who now lives in New Mexico that met his wife in a Starbucks, and they’re still married, six or seven years later. However, a recent article on “Starbucks Weddings” got someone in Seattle thinking. . .and so today is The Worlds’ Biggest Starbucks date!

Really, I’m sure it’s mostly for fun, but they’re offering $5 pairings today at 2:00 pm local time until closing at participating locations. That means, most likely, Kroger and Target and other “satellite” locations won’t be participating, but I’m not 100% sure.

I should have known they were up to something when the app for was free on my phone. (Here’s a little more on that one.) NO WAY. I’ve done dating sites before–I know exactly what kind of freaks hang out there. Doesn’t matter which one. . .I am not getting on Match, or Plenty of Fish, or any other site. Forget it. (Thank heavens for concealed carry in Texas.)

In all seriousness, there is a little tool on the Starbucks website to send someone an invite. However, it will be my laptop and me, along with a book I need to read on upping the ante on my LinkedIn profile. I know the author and one of the collaborators; one is a female in San Antonio, the other is a writer in New Jersey who is a nice man, but I bet his wife would object!

In all seriousness, I’m thinking about a decaf Flat White and a chocolate croissant. Yes, I know. . .I’ve been good, I promise. But the end result will be another star on my card, and another free thing, which, as we all know, will be one of their $7 salad boxes.

Today is a good day to invite someone you’ve been thinking about, someone you care about, or show someone you’ve been with a long time a little nicety at Starbucks. Why not?

You know what I call it: “safe haven with food.” But really, I get no compensation for saying this, it’s a nice place to meet up with someone or take someone out for a quick bite or a coffee, from 2:00 pm local time to close.

Enjoy, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
