Cultural indicators

November 6, 2006

For my many and diverse sins I have become a compulsive collector of Starbucks City Mugs (but only for those cities I have visited). I spend a lot of my time drinking their coffee seeing them as my third place, so it sort of makes sense. There are already three shelves of them at home and I will have to build more shortly. When I landed at Calgary last night my first thought was to find Starbucks and add to the collection. However all I could get was Canada. Vancouver has its own as does Toronto. WHat has Calgary done or not done? I think there is an interesting PhD here to study the Seattle perspective of the world bbased on which major cities warrant a mug or not.
