Is it just us, or does the fact that the Trib feels compelled to breathlessly list which Starbucks are going to close feel a little odd? Are frappuccinos really that irreplaceable? Will the fact that we'll have to say "small" instead of "vendi" diminish our lives so much? Anyway, we guess we'll follow the Trib's lead and hand out the casualty list. Starbucks cafes will close in downtown Berkeley, Brentwood, Walnut Creek, Hayward, Concord, and Emeryville on San Pablo Avenue. There. You alright? That wasn't so bad, was it?
