    I will be there in the early AM for a brewed coffee.
    I enjoy the "Komodo Dragon" blend. I usually order a "tall"...... 'Dragon :neener:
    That is my name, after all :)
    I sent email support to corporate as well.
    I may swing by after work for another beverage as well.......Tuxedo mocha is one of my fav's :D

    I think my mocha tasted better this morning because I'm in NYC. Not carrying of course, but supporting Starbucks anyway.

    I'm looking forward to a chocolate smoothie myself in NYC today.

    My local Starbucks seemed to be doing a brisk trade this morning, but I spent a bit more than usual anyway. I may stop by on the way home as well.

    Question for THR readers doing this in normally anti-gun areas like NJ and lower NYS - how are the staff reacting?
    I haven't gotten over to a Starbucks today, but I'm primed with a batch of $2 bills.

    Oh, to THR - Happy Valentine's Day!

    In the spirit of that day, as a still-single guy, I'd like to say, "guns are better then women - cheaper to feed and easier to unjam!"

    As a married guy, I'd have to agree... just don't tell my wife! ;)

    My daughter and I stopped on the way to school and both paid with $2s. My wife will stop on the way to the clinic and pay with $2s as well. That's 3 people that don't normally get Starbucks paying with $2s today at 2 different locations.

    Stopped in on my way to work this morning... Evidence of my slacking off in the background!

    But this Chai Tea is pretty good!

    Enjoying my Verona dark coffee and veggie sandwich from Starbucks this morning more than ever. No sign of boycotters or any drop in business here.

    Kind of a pain getting the $2 bills, but I'll be going at least once today. Hopefully there will be some antis there to chat with, maybe I'll even buy an anti a cup of coffee. Also posted on my facebook, and submitted a few article and blog links to the Drudge Report. If you have time, you should do the same on Drudge, there is a box on the right side of the page to submit news.

    There seemed to be some 2A supporters lurking this morning when I went into the Starbucks on the PA turnpike. At $6 for a drink, I skipped the $2 muffin (don't need it anyway)....

    Liked them on fb then they supported gay marriage in Washington state. So I won't be supporting them' but it doesn't really matter cause the closest one to me is over an hour away.

    Grande Cafe Americano and a big slab of Banana bread

    Mine was the only $2, but it was early and Texarkana is not a big town.

    Missoula, Montana checking in! Grande Mocha w/whip, my SOP. I figured I would be the only one here, as I don't think the college kids or the UPS driver are carrying......I don't usually sit and stay, but I got laid off on friday for a bit, so I got nuthin' but time!

    Forgot my $2 bill, though. Oh well, I guess my daughter will get it when she loses her first tooth!

    Had my first ever cup of Starbucks this morning. The crowd certainly didn't look like gunnies, but some could have been.

    I stopped at the southside Starbucks, and my wife stopped at the northside one.

    I stopped going to Starbucks a while back when I discovered McDonald's cheap "senior coffee" (decent, and only 59cents). However, to support them today in the face of the boycott, I went to a Starbucks and waited in line for a tall dark roast redeye. There were people behind me, so I didn't really have a chance to explain my purpose. They were pretty busy, so I guess the boycott isn't doing much harm.

    I have to go out again this evening, so I'll get another redeye then, even though I'll end up awake half the night with caffeine jitters :)

    Just got back from Starbucks as I type this. The closest Starbucks is less than a mile away, so I walked there and back.

    Got a box of that Tazo green tea that they carry, for $6.95.

    Did my part.

    Starbucks coffee still tastes burned, though.

    Wouldn't normally splurge, but I'm gonna by a second cup of coffee today! The first one was because I was tired.

    Got my favorite from them, A Venti Caramel Frappuchino. It didn't survive the ride back to work though! I was concealed carrying both my usual 5" 1911, and also my stone-age BUG.

    They got an extra tip, but honestly it had more to do with the cute girl taking my order than it did with them supporting my RTKBA :)

    Virginia Beach. Don't know if there are other 2A supporters, but no evidence of a boycott. Place is hopping.
