Erosion of Society: Starbucks Conquers the Presidio

New, 2 comments

In less than two months, George Lucas and his Lucasfilm cohort will be able to indulge in those orange mocha frappuccinos on their home turf (just in time for post-production on the new Indiana Jones movie), as a tipster sends word of an upcoming Starbucks location in the former Perk Presidio Cafe space. That's right: the historic Presidio will soon be home to a Starbucks franchise, meaning that everyone's favorite former military base has reached the point of no return in its slow, spiraling descent from beloved institution to industrial and commercial hub. Next up: a McDonald's drive-through in Golden Gate Park.
