My sixth Starbucks a tiny oasis right smack in the middle of Uglyville, CA. Okay, it's actually North Hills but they should consider either changing the name to Uglyville or have a paint day. Maybe it's the June gloom but Starbucks store number 11447 would feel right at home in a Steinbeck novel.
It's nice inside the store. Very friendly crew. Across the street is a Yum-Yum Donut shop and an Anheuser-Busch Brewery is a stone's throw away. Homer Simpson would love it here.
The guy in blue in the picture is acting out some fight in a store in which one of the guys had a gun. And on the way here I passed a guy carrying a beer bottle and a machete.
