Not a noteworth Starbucks in the least, but it's worth dropping by to see the interesting artwork the Plaza has on display.

This was another one of those situations where I spent some time waiting for a clear shot of the front of the store, only to realize later that a different angle--in this case, the back, presented a more appealing visage.

A rare case (perhaps just four in the U.S.) of a company-owned store inside a hospital building. Hope they don't build more. I dislike hospitals (full of sick people).

Both the interior and exterior of this building in downtown Charlotte present myriad opportunities for interesting photographs. I would have liked to take the shot from that white outcropping next to to the escalator, but, as I had expected, the security guard quickly nixed that idea. The store has a window to the outside, so one of these days, when I have more time (and some climbing gear), I need to return and try to get a shot from up on one of the adjoining buildings.

Several baristas had told me that this was the nicest store in the area, and their words proved true. The inside is spacious and accomodating, and the outside affords the feeling of sitting out on a front porch. Even the Starbucks sign is tucked out of the way, so as not to distract from the down-home-ness of the store.

I was not able to fit both the Starbucks in the Bank of America Plaza and the full height of the building in the same frame, but nevertheless, that's the building in the background, along with the sign for this other Starbucks across the street.

This store is built in one of those master-planned communities, far north of Charlotte, that seem to have everything anybody would ever need (including a Starbucks). It looks great, true, but with no need to head downtown for their dose of Starbucks, the residents might end up missing out on the true flavor of the city.

This store surely had some puzzled baristas, on the evening of August 24th, as I rushed in, towel and toiletries in hand, plugged in my telephone, and disappeared into the grocery store in search of a bathroom. My attempt to save some time by using the rain to clean myself up was a wash--I just ended up covered in soap. But in the end, and legs, and arms, I was able to scrape all that soap off, change clothes, and cast off the appearance of homelessness--not that the homeless are known for drinking much espresso. I should have ordred that shot immediately, though, because the bar was down and it had to be poured using one of the small consumer machines, as I paced about frantically, hoping that Tori Amos would take her time before starting the show. She didn't, and the rainstorm on the way to the concert venue didn't help. But at least I got to see a Harris Teeter's (the dumbest name for a grocery store ever).
