I don't think I've been back to Hollywood since I moved away two years ago (amazing to think it's already been two years) so I had no idea how badly the old Gilmore Gas Station on Highland had deteriorated. The good news is that it's about to get fixed up to become a shiny new drive-thru Starbucks, according to Curbed LA. And I agree with the Curbed article, the idea of a walk-up window really is brilliant. I'm happy that the old station is going to get restored and see some new action. You can bitch about big evil corporations all you want. I just love Starbucks for doing this.
