Starbucks Around the World: Louisville, KY

Well, if you look real close, there’s little old me at the big old Starbucks.  Louisville was our stop off city on a road trip to Smoky Mountain National Park.  A short walk from the hotel lead us to the Louisville Convention Center and the first hit in the Southern states.  I made it a mocha since it doubled as my breakfast.  Per tradition, I asked the barista if they carried city mugs and he replied with a slight southern tang, “Nope.  Small market.”

Right.

In any case, the Starbucks experience and Southern charm are a very good pair.  Big thumbs up for this little store in the big convention center in this little city in the big South.
