Starbucks announces free WiFi beginning July 1.
Makes me miss the old nice, big Beverly Connection Starbucks even more than I already do. It was wonderful. The remodel robbed it not only of a lot of room, but of its cozy charm as well. I started my feature script Catfight there and my two main characters in that story have their cute meet there. Seriously, who wants to sit at outside tables at the intersection of La Cienega and the entrance to the parking structure? If I wanted to inhale those kind of fumes I'd take up smoking.
However, I do think it's a good thing that Starbucks finally decided to jump on the free WiFi bandwagon. I'm sure they'll make up the cost in increased business. I know I'm more likely to go there now.
