Take a close look at this photograph from Vancouver, British Columbia and you'll see something interesting. This is one of the places where there is a Starbucks on the corner opposite another Starbucks. People who live in the neighborhood say that one of the cafes is a "biker" cafe and the other is for everyone else. I don't know if "biker" is Canadian for "cyclist" or if they mean rough-and-tumble motorcycle madmen enjoy their lattes at one of these. The locals also tell me that a third Starbucks is planned for the same intersection and should be open in a few months.
