Occupy Starbuck’s

Occupy Starbuck's

“They’re inside in the afternoon, tapping at laptops and  nursing lattes. They send emails and organize protests, chat with friends and  warm their hands. It’s been two months now, and no one shows any signs of  leaving. It’s undisputed and undeniable: The Starbucks at 15th and K has been  thoroughly Occupied.”

— “Starbucks near protesters’ compound thoroughly Occupied,” Aubrey Whelan, Washington Examiner

Starbuck’s? $5 lattes are for losers. Real K Street habitués occupy DC Coast, Lincoln DC, Café du ParcThe Prime Rib, Siroc, Bobby Van’s, Georgia Brown’s, Potenza, and BLT Steak. There’s no Wi-Fi at these places, but most have valet parking service.
