171 Starbucks ... in One Day
March 31, 2008 6:00 AM
Did you know there are 171 Starbucks stores in Manhattan?
Comedian-filmmaker Mark Malkoff decided to see if it would be possible to visit every Starbucks in the city in a day: That’s one store every seven minutes for at least 20 consecutive hours. The rules were to make a purchase in every store and consume at least part of the product.
Check out this video as Malkoff bicycles through Manhattan getting more and more jacked up on caffeine throughout the day. The best part is about seven minutes into the video, when he hits a couple of snags late at night and has to bribe or try to bribe several Starbucks employees when he hits stores past closing time.
