Starbucks Foo

I like Starbucks because they offer free wi-fi with no time limit, the furniture is comfortable for laptop use, I can pay via my cell phone, they have chocolate drinks, it is a haven for people-watching and there are a lot of them. This week I have been derailed several times because the ones nearest work do not have enough space/tables to meet the demand, two of them share a tiny parking lot with several other popular shops, and despite what the gummint would have you believe, underemployment is rampant in Silicon Valley, so there is no good time during the day to be sure there will be parking and a place to sit. When employment is at an optimal level, few people hang out there during the day, most of the traffic is take-away.

But today I remembered the hidden one, next to the pizza place and sharing a huge parking lot with a supermarket. That's where I did most of my facebooking today.
