Traveling? Need coffee?

If you're keeping track, you might think I have something against Starbucks, as this is my second ranting post on the topic.

But it's really that I just want the local business owners to stay in business so that someday we aren't left with Starbucks as our only choice....you know the deal.

So now there's Delocator--which I've conveniently added to our links to the right--a website that locates alternative coffeeshops by zip code. (Did you know that there an appalling 43 Starbucks in or near my zip code--do you KNOW what is in my zip code?!)

So next time you're traveling and need some caffeine or even a nice spot of lunch such as at Urban Roadhouse--http://denvercoffee.blogspot.com/2005/10/urban-roadhouse-great-denver-find.html--who has a monthly traveling theme special, you can find out where to go other than the ubiquitous Evil Empire.
