Starbucks Around the World: Crystal Lake, IL

On a Thanksgiving Day pre-turkey jaunt through downtown Crytal Lake, IL, it seemed only fitting that I pose with my mother for a thumbs up.  You see, this is the town in which I spent most of my former years (well, technically Cary, but I don’t like to talk about it).  Also fitting is the guy behind us photo bombing our picture.

The barista insisted that it’s a good year for Christmas Blend.  Let’s hope he’s right.
