Santa drinks Starbucks!

Yes, really.

We’ve spotted Santa at Starbucks a few times while Mom and I were mall-walking. The first time it happened, I tried to double back and and nonchalantly shoot a picture with my Treo camera. However, he saw me through the window and waved. I was too embarrassed to bother with a picture and sheepishly went on with my walk.

The next time we walked by Starbucks (the one located on the Second Level, West Market Street, across from Eddie Bauer), Mom saw him and decided to go inside and ask him his permission for a picture. He graciously obliged.


You never know, you might bump into Santa the next time you go to Starbucks! Edited 12.4.07 Santa also rides a motorcycle! (Scroll down to the last picture; thanks Tracey!)

In other news… I noticed that this blog’s number of comments is approaching the 2,000 mark. I hope to reach it before the end of the year. If someone leaves the 2,000th comment on or before December 31, 2007, I’ll award a $20 gift certificate to that person. The winner will be able to choose a certificate from one of the following: Amazon, The Loopy Ewe, or Woolgirl. Will you be the lucky commenter??

    Gotta love a Santa that looks like the genuine article! Maybe you should have a contest for random Santa sightings?

    When you consider the time of year, and Santa’s schedule, I guess it no surprise that he’s been spotted at Starbucks. They guy must go through an awful lot of coffee between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    I went into Starbucks before going to a Halloween party dressed as Death. My friend was a vampire. It was rather hilarious as a Japanese tourist asked to take a picture with us (we did) and then the guy behind the counter gave us free brownies. :D

    Well Santa have a lot to do between now and Christmas, so he’s going to need lots of coffee. Besides those ginerbread lattes are pretty good.

    so should we start leaving him Starbucks Gift Cards instead of cookies and milk? (or maybe in addition to?)

    Santa probably needs all the caffeine he can get right now!
