Starbucks Evenings: Your New Nighttime Hang!

Starbucks Evenings: Coming to Your Local Coffeehouse?

How fun is this? Starbucks Evenings is a nighttime menu that's currently being offered at select Starbucks locations in a few major markets... and it's being reported that several hundred more stores nationwide may hop on the bandwagon by the end of the year! We're talkin' wine, craft beer, and sharable small plates, in addition to the usual coffee and tea options. We love this idea -- perfect when some of your friends want drinks, some are hungry, and some are craving coffee. The menu varies by region, but we got a peek at the sample menu, and everything on it has fewer than 500 calories! Here are some of the items we've got our eye on...

Chicken Skewers - Coated with panko breadcrumbs and Parm... Yum! (340 calories)

Truffle Popcorn - Served warm with truffle salt? Don't mind if we do. (150 calories)

Artichoke & Goat Cheese Flatbread - Complete with Jack cheese and red peppers... (310 calories)
