Starbucks steams milk and gun owners

Double shot, not double-barreled: Starbucks took out ads in major newspapers today to clarify its position on people carrying firearms into its cafes. While it’s not banning guns, the coffee giant is making it clear that guns aren’t welcome.

So you can still bring your gun into a Starbucks, but please don’t use it to blow the foam off the top of your Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Get it yourself, Bob! A familiar sight is set to return to Seattle’s skyline in November: the neon “R” above what was the Rainier brewery. The beery icon was removed in 2000 when Tully’s Coffee moved into the building. Tully’s now plans to return the “R” to its rightful spot. Rainier is still sold here, but it’s now brewed under contract by Miller Brewing. In Irwindale, Calif.

Irwindale? Near L.A.? Do they even know what a real mountain looks like in L.A.?

Crime pays: The highly anticipated video game, “Grand Theft Auto V,” in which players plan and execute heists and engage in other criminal activity, brought in more then $800 million in sales on its first day of release.

Which is surprising when you consider most GTA purists would have stuck to the game ethic and pirated their copy.
