Coffee for the fans
The Starbucks at Coolidge Corner is rarely empty, but today the line stretches out the door for more than just the morning rush. Caffeine is fueling much of the excitement of people watching to judge from the line, as well as the steaming cups held in hands up and down the course here. "I've been traveling down the course to cheer on my friend Dan," says Laura. "This helps keep my energy up." The baristas are starting to look like they are the ones running a marathon. Their crowd doesn't cheer though, just orders another espresso shot.
