Yes, we have a few Starbucks in the Tri-Cities, but the new location on Court Street in Pasco is something special. Not only is the brand new store beautiful and spacious, it's got some seriously cool features. They have these long tables perfect for groups to meet, chat, and study. And get this, electric outlets build in to the tables! The shop can hold 75 people on the inside and 30 on the patio: perfect for when we finally get that summer weather is coming.

I went to a Friends and Family event to check out the new digs. I spoke to District Manager, Jason and Store Manager, Jessie (who are both really cool by the way) about this location. This Starbucks was designed to be a community gathering place where people can come relax, study, chat, and of course grab delicious coffee and snacks. Plus they are going to have some Tri-Cities exclusives coming like the Nitro Cold Brew. It's Starbucks Cold Brew, hooked to a Nitro tap (like nitro beers) that will ad a smooth creamy finish. That should be up and ready to go by July 1. And depending on demand, they make start taking reservations for the big tables so you can have a space for your mom group, church group, stay group or whatever to meet up!

The store opens Thursday, June 1. Store hours are M-S 4:30 am - 9pm and open on Sunday at 5:30 am. The hours may get even longer based on how busy they get. And yes, they have a drive-thru so if you can't make it inside, you can get your Starbucks fix in a hurry. I definitely recommend going in when you have the chance. The staff is super nice, the shop looks amazing, and hey, yummy yummy beverages! Win Win WIN!!!
