Starbucks truck at Al's Beef today
If you're headed out to lunch and want to try Starbucks new VIA Ready Brew before it hits the market, head to Al's Beef, ahem, right now. Comedian Erin Foley (Last Comic Standing), is driving cross country with Starbucks coffee expert Brad Nelson hyping the new instant coffee's "real" flavor—meaning the flavor of classic, brewed-right-in-front-of-you Starbucks. They're at Al's on Taylor Street today—so pick up a jolt of java with your meaty monstrosity.
UPDATE: Yes, Chicago has had VIA for a while, so it isn't exactly new here, we reviewed it in March—but if it is the same as the VIA I tasted a while back, it does the trick and then some.
