Who says Starbucks isn’t getting into the Christmas spirit?

On Thursday (Nov. 12) through Sunday (Nov. 15), the coffee chain is truly embracing the season of giving, as customers will receive a free holiday drink with the purchase of any other holiday beverage. A double dose of  cheer!

The BOGO special will last from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day, and if you’re a Starbucks Rewards member you can also take advantage of it on Monday (when, let’s be honest, you’re gonna need that extra cup the most).

All of their seasonal latte favorites are included in the deal, including Chestnut Praline, Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée, Gingerbread, Eggnog, and this year’s newcomer, the Teavana Gingerbread Tea Latte.

With all this caffeine running through our systems, we have a feeling it’s going to be a very, very productive weekend.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

BOGO is not really free, but that’s a pretty good deal if you can rustle up a coffee date.

I think this whole cup thing was a PR stunt put on by Starbucks.
