Wow… 44 by my house, 30 by the gallery downtown. I’m sure that’s nothing on people who live more westside. What’s your Starbucks Density?
“Go to the Starbucks locator and put in your address to find out your Starbucks density (accept the default 5-mile radius and then scroll to the bottom of the search listings and find the “Showing 1-20 of xxx Stores” text).
The world record so far is 170 in Manhattan.
My office is at 86 SBD* and my home is a 46 (which latter number is a little surprising, given the nice-but-not-that-nice nature of my neighborhood). Both of those are right on the lake, so think of all those imaginary Starbuckses that would exist if only there was land there. Or let your mind range free — boat-based Starbuckses! Sealab-style underwater coffee! (via Chicago Metblog via Kottke.org)
