Starbucks Fix via Text Message

Sunday, March 4, 2007

I travel all over the place, especially in Los Angeles with film locations in every part of the county. I also travel a fair bit throughout north America.

When I start my day I usually want my Starbucks fix. OK it’s not the best tasting cappuccino – but they are everywhere, efficient and fast. Once I’m on the film set, I am trapped for a long spell and often don’t know where the closest Starbucks is.

I found the latest, greatest solution – just send a text message to the following number: 697289 (“MYSBUX”) and simply enter the local zip code. Within moments you will receive text messages back with the addresses of the three nearest Starbucks locations.

I tried it in several different cities over the last few days – I got my fix and the shooting days were a breeze.

    Why I boycott all Starbucks, and have since 9/11 –>
    Yeah, I know… their business is still going strong. But it’s the principle.
