A public-service announcement, courtesy a press release: Beginning at 11 a.m., Starbucks will be giving away 8-ounce cups of coffee -- which is awesome, if you love your coffee just the wrong side of burnt. Alas, it's the company's new Pike Place Roast, so named for the company's original Seattle location -- which was about 15,999 stores ago, give or take. In related news, this curious note from the Dallas Business Journal: "Starbucks is erecting Pike's Place Cafés in some cities, including one in Dallas' West Village on McKinney and Lemmon. The café will be a replica of the original Starbucks store in Seattle." --Robert Wilonsky
