On the agenda for tonight’s Decatur City Commission meeting, an alcohol beverage application from Decatur’s Starbucks location on the Square.
This is part a recent-ish nationwide push by the chain to expand its offerings and better monetize those off-coffee hours. “Starbucks Evenings” offerings include wine, beer and small plates.
Here’s a description from the Starbucks website…
We’ve always been your neighborhood morning stop—a place to help you start your day. Now we’re bringing a little delight to your evenings too.
Our Starbucks Evenings menu features a thoughtful selection of wine and craft beer alongside the signature coffee and tea beverages you know and love. Enjoy one of our savory small plates – whether it’s our creamy Truffle Mac & Cheese or a delicious flatbread.
So take a moment to unwind, meet up with friends and enjoy a glass of wine and a delicious little something—with us.
