LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Looking for a relaxing place to get a drink? Southern Californians may be able to head to their local Starbucks very soon.

Starbucks announced Monday plans to bring wine, beer and premium food offerings to a handful of Southern California stores by the end of this year. It’s a concept they first introduced at its Olive Way location in Seattle in October 2010. The idea has been expanded to stores in Portland, Oregon and soon, to Chicago, Atlanta and Southern California.

Starbucks has not said which Southern California stores are slated to see the change.

Starbucks, along with Burger King and Sonic Corp, are experimenting with alcohol sales in an effort to boost afternoon and evening sales.

    Really? And, how much they going to charge for a domestic beer? Three times the going price ? Hate to see how much they are going to rip people off for a Sam Adams….. Heck, their coffee prices would break you….. A little adivce………….drink at home, buy your beer on sale at the local market or Bevmo. And, brew your own coffee…….save your money.

    If you want to know which Starbucks stores are going to sell the alcohol, ust look for the application for the License to Sell Alcoholic Beverages that will be posted near the front door in the window. Theres already one in Colton in San Bernardino County that has the paperwork posted.
