The folks at USA Today have gone to one such test shop in Seattle to see how things are going.
Check out the video below to get a peek at what might be the future of Starbucks. In addition to serving booze, the experimental outlet is making an attempt to draw in the after-work crowd and get them to stay a little longer and hang out.
