Starbucks has a bazillion coffees -- tiramisu latte, anyone? -- but the coffee mega-chain has finally figured out a way to make the chronic misspelling of your name even more hilarious: by selling you booze. Over the next couple of years, the Bux will be adding beer and wine to thousands of its locations through a national roll-out of its Evenings Menu. The special menu is already a part of Atlanta, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Chicago-area Starbucks, and it includes vino ranging from Prosecco to Malbec. (The beer list, available upon request, varies across regions.) The Evenings Menu also boasts small plates like truffle mac 'n cheese, which would pair terribly with a peppermint latte, but would go pretty good with a beer.
