From a Starbucks down in Santa Clara... I'm not usually a Starbucks patron, but I was in the area to visit a friend and he was running late, so I had some time to kill and no where particular to kill it. So it was off to find a bit of cofee. Having not spent any amount of time in the area in quite a while I only knew where to find one coffee shop... So it wasn't exceptionally good coffee, but it did net an 'older than me' quarter.
