Starbucks Happy Hour

It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

For many of us (westerners at least), Starbucks is a daily trip, if not twice a day.  We usually start out our morning at the drive through, and then maybe head back later for an afternoon pick-me-up.  We all convince ourselves that it’s totally fine to spend 10 dollars a day on coffee. And if you didn’t already know, you’ll be jumping for joy to find out that Starbucks actually has a happy hour (to make you feel a little better about all of your coffee spending).

It’s not such a new thing, but they’ve changed things up. Previously, the deal was that Frappucino’s would be half off from 3-6pm during May for the course of a week and a half.  They announced that the new happy hour would be from 3pm until closing on March 29th.

And for the rest of the time? Make sure you sign up on their website for their Happy Hour reminder.


Generally though, it happens after 3pm, so try to hold out until then. The exciting Happy Hour reminders will send you a message telling you exactly what day and time the Happy Hour will be taking place, as well as what’s on tap for the day.
