That being said there is only one thing to get me out of this funk and that's a roadtrip to Sin City!!! You heard me - the DH and I decided whilst in the shower this morning to say "Screw it!" So we made reservations and are heading to Vegas today around 3! Woohoo!!! Can't wait!!!
I stopped into Starbucks this morning and right off the bat I noticed their sleeves were different. Sleeves (for all you non-Starbucks peeps) are the recycled cardboard thingys they put on their drinks when the cups are too hot to hold. They are white with a brown logo - or siren as it's called. Upon closer investigation, I noticed the Siren itself is also changed!! According to the girl behind the counter they are going back to their old siren. I had to do a little research but I managed to find all three. Here you go:
As you can see this one is quite risque. They actually stopped using this one to avoid any controversy over their store logo. So they switched to this one:
Still didn't satisfy the conservative crowd, so that's when they ended up using the one most of us are familiar with:
I must admit I am surprised they would revert back to the original, although I think it's cool and it is my favorite. One thing to note the new old version says "Starbucks * Fresh Roasted Coffee*" It doesn't say "Coffee Tea Spices".
In honor of the day it seems only fitting to have the SONG OF THE DAY as "Viva Las Vegas" by the King, Elvis Presley.
