You’ve read about them before: the $750 cupcake and $5,000 burger you can find in Las Vegas; the $10,000 martini on sale in West Hollywood. Some people must be ordering them and feeling like it was money well spent. Lots of others will file those dishes under the Ripped-off-at-a-Restaurant category.
Starbucks to Dumb Starbucks: You can't use our trademark
The real Starbucks isn't happy with the parody coffee shop calling itself Dumb Starbucks that's popped up in Los Angeles, and wants the faux baristas to drop the act.
Employees who 'ooze hospitality' are in hot demand at The Cheesecake Factory where perks like BMWs for its general managers have helped it land on Fortune's list of 100 Best Companies to Work For.
As New Year's resolution, Seattle resident Beautiful Existence challenged herself to eat only food from Starbucks for all of 2013. She achieved that. Year-long challenges are a thing she does.

Starbucks is the latest big company to announce an aggressive push to hire veterans returning to the civilian work force.
The Seattle-based coffee chain said on Wednesday that it will hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses over the next five years.

The world has gone crazy for hybrid pastries.
In New York, fans continue to stand outside the Dominique Ansel bakery every morning to buy the fried, cream-filled hybrid known as the Cronut. Its popularity has since spread to London, and Starbucks looked to get in on the hybrid craze by unveiling their own “Frankenpastry,” a donut-muffin concoction called the Duffin.
On its website, Starbucks UK proudly noted that the company “sat together with our bakers” to create a pastry that combined “the iconic shape” of a muffin with “the elements of a traditional jam-filled donut.”
Sounds tasty, right? Not to Bea Vo.
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has a message for gun owners: Please don't bring your weapons into our stores.
Schultz told CNN that the company is not instituting a ban, and is simply making a request "through the lens of civility and respect."
