Midwinter Must Dos: A Glimpse at Some of the Many Events and Activities That Are Sure to Keep You Busy during the Meeting


THE FIRST STARBUCKS ... AND WINE

Visit the original Starbucks store, opened in 1976 at 1912 Pike Place Market. (The store was first at 2000 Western, launching in 1971, but moved here five years later.) it retains the original look, but the coffee is what you'd find at any of their nearly 20,000 locations worldwide.
