So Im sure you’re all bummed that you have not been able to find this site in Google until recently. Well, I just figured this out a few weeks ago. I tried to fix it by adding the site to Google’s index but for some reason, it just never showed up. I messed with my robots.txt file more than any sane person should to try to fix the problem. Then yesterday, I figured out the problem: WordPress had privacy setting that was set by default to not allow robots to crawl this site.
Problem solved; next call!
More information from a fan, Simon Grasshoff…
I know I’ve sent you the picture of those two starbucks next to each other the other day, but guess what: They’ve built a third one on that corner… inside a bookstore !!!
Now time will stand extra still between those three…
Thanks for sending this Simon! The video is below.
I was just sent this information from Simon Grasshoff…
Hey man, I just came back from a visit to Houston, TX and now that I’m back home in Germany I realized that you did a page about my favorite stand-up comedy. I attached a picture that I took a couple of days ago because I am such a huge fan of that piece of comedy that I made my friends taking me there.
Didn’t know someone was as crazy as me and actually posting those pictures.
I hope it helps.
I already have a picture of this instantiation but another look at it can’t hurt! Thanks Simon!
Jackie Whiteley adds, “I just wanted to let you know a little about the two Starbucks in Vancouver. Back when it was okay to smoke in some places, they opened a second Starbucks so that one was non-smoking, while the other allowed smoking. That way they could please everyone. Of course, now you can’t smoke indoors in coffee shops anywhere, so it’s a little redundant. But that’s the logic as to why they thought that across the street from Starbucks was a great place to build a Starbucks.”
Steven Seydell sent me a link of the Starbucks across the street from a Starbucks in Vancouver, B.C.
Adam Lipstadt writes, “The Astor place on is a bit funnier, because it borders on being a *triple* Starbucks – the double black banners on the red building in the attached detail jpg read Barnes and Noble Bookstore, which of course, has a café which resells Starbucks branded coffee.”
I have confirmation from Jennifer Gonzalez that in New York City there is another case of the Starbucks across the street form a Starbucks phenomenon. Apparently one instance of this is on Astor Place and the other One Near 38th street.
Sam Prus writes, “… at Webster and Clybourn in Chicago, you can sit in a Starbucks in the Barnes and Noble and look out the window to see a Starbucks across the street.” I have no pictures though to confirm this.
