Moline now part of Starbucks empire

Moliners who want to get their coffee fix from a global conglomerate with over 8,500 outlets worldwide will finally get their chance as a Starbucks debuted it's first store in Moline today. The store is running a special with free coffee and pastry samples until 6 p.m. The new coffee shop is located opposite Wal-Mart on the north side of 41st Avenue. The article reports that their hours are from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. Monday through Sunday, which I guess is pretty much every day there is, unless I've missed something. The store will also be unique in that it has a drive through window.
That does it. Moline is now officially on the map.

The are no words capable of sufficiently describing my elation over this fact. AND, the place has a drive-thru, rendering me just giddy. I alone could make this place cash flow.

The do got's some good coffee. No doubt about it. And every now and then, The Dope can handle a double espresso when I feel like taking a rocket ride. But it tends to make my heart beat sound like the opening to Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher".
