Thursday, August 16th it's another Starbucks happy hour event!

I've only experienced two and a half summers here in Grand Junction. Is it me or is this summer hotter than the previous two? I'm not sure but one great way to beat the heat is with one of Starbucks iced beverages.

Mark your calendar for one week from today. Next Thursday, August 16th it's another Starbucks happy hour event! From 3 PM to close "Starbucks lovers" (not the misunderstood lyrics of that Taylor Swift song) can buy one grande or larger iced drink and another for FREE! So you know, the "Black Space" lyrics are...“Got a long list of ex-lovers / they’ll tell you I’m insane,” not... “Got a lot of Starbucks lovers / they’ll tell you I’m insane.

So grab a friend and plan to head to Starbucks next week. Or get two drinks for yourself. Either way, here's how you can cash in the deal...Sign up for Starbucks rewards and you’ll get a promo code. Show the code when you order. Once you’re in the rewards club, you’ll get notifications about future happy hours and other Starbucks special offers! Enjoy your free iced drink you "...Starbucks lovers" you!
