In what may not be a coincidental dovetailing of announcements, Starbucks has recently voiced its support for gay marriage and its plan to expand an evening menu of hot food, cheeses, and happy-hour beer and wine to select cities.
The marriage-equality plaudit comes as Washington State has gathered enough votes to pass legislation on the matter. Starbucks is headquartered in Seattle, where the evening menu has been a resounding success. Now they’re going to give it a try in five other locations, perhaps in Atlanta and Southern California. Does this mean California and Georgia are the next marriage-equality states?
Venti beer and same-sex nuptials: a match made in heaven.
