This store, the first on the Kentucky side of the river, has a cool new type of partition I'd not seen anywhere else. Rather than being like a short wall, the partition consists of two thin metal poles on either side of which are affixed two large boards of indeterminate composition (since I lacked my tricorder). I wish Starbucks would get behind me on this project and allow me to take photos of these cool features, if they weren't so freaked about that whole corporate espionage thing.
