Soon, the world will see more Starbucks-es in indie clothing. In fact, it seems that, soon, the world will see two right here on Capitol Hill.
File this one in the rumor mill but CHS has found a rather interesting liquor application for a business listed at 700 Broadway East.
Coffee House Holdings Inc. is at it again:
Liquor license action details
Location 700 Broadway Ave. E.
Application date August 4, 2009
Applicant COFFEE HOUSE HOLDINGS, INC.; RUBINFELD, ARTHUR; MALANGA, MICHAEL; FINK, MICHAEL P; LAUTCH, RICHARD H
License number 405270
Event type New application
License types Restaurant — beer and wine
Action type New liquor license application
CHH is the same entity Starbucks used to apply for the licenses and permits for 15th Ave Coffee and Tea before it opened to curiosity and animosity.
Also, while investigating this story about a possible move for the Broadway post office, CHS was told that the developer of the 700 Broadway Apartments had been negotiating with Starbucks to rent the large retail space next to Kinko’s. As one might say, ah hah! Caught you!
It’s late and that’s all we got but the gets are pretty good. One obvious question is which local businesses the Broadway Coffee and Tea (ok, we made that name up!) will draw its inspiration from. We’re pulling for the nearby Museum of Mysteries. You?
UPDATE: Our calls to Starbucks media relations seeking to confirm the new shop were not returned.
