Last Monday, May 2, 2011, Starbucks branches around Metro Manila kicked off their Happy hour promo.
For 2 hours of everyday of the first week of May, Starbucks patrons get to have their Frappuccino’s of choice for half price. Also patrons, may only get 2 drinks at a time. Given how the promo is set up, bedlam ensued at every Starbucks branch during lunch.
The following events took place between 1pm and 2pm on May3rd, 2011.
I think it’s safe to say that, for me at least, waiting in line for a nearly an hour for a pair of half priced drinks is not something I would want to do again.
