Starbucks opens its first store in Paris

Starbucks opens its first store in Paris. In Paris, France, not in Paris Hilton.

The best coffee I've ever had was in Paris. Even a cafe noir at any random brasserie was unbelievably tasty. I don't know how to make french-style coffee for myself.. anyone have some tips for an american down on his luck?

You had to add 'Paris Hilton', didn't you?
Its not like you don't already get enough hits!

It involves a fertilized hen's egg, an old sock, and a hammer.

Are you sure you want to know?

They are also opening their first store in Iowa this week. Not as glamourous as Paris, i know, but still...

are you SURE it's not Paris Hilton?

... Still laughing from the "Paris Hilton" comment. There's actually tears in my eyes...

Dang, I guess I'll just have to keep on waiting for when I can have my morning mocha in Paris Hilton.

(Yikes, I don't even really know what that means, I'm sorry.)

Well, the are really at walking distance (8mins) from each other, apparently. The Paris Hilton and the Paris Starbucks, I mean.
Paris Hilton : 18 av Suffren 75015 Paris
Starbucks Paris : 26 avenue de l'Opéra 75001 Paris

So, theorically, you *could* have your morning mocha in Paris Hilton. But, as surprising as it might be, it'd probably be cold by the time you drink it ;)

If memory serves, the Paris Hilton operates by night. So with the new Starbucks you can now get 24 hour service.

Wow, yeah, I think I'd much rather have a mocha in the Paris Hilton (the hotel) than in Paris Hilton (the person.)
Much less chance of catching something nasty, I believe.

I'll have the carmel mocha frappacino in the paris hilton, with paris hilton while being video taped.
