Starbucks now open in Downtown Evansville

You can get your morning cup of Joe at Starbucks in DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Downtown Evansville.

First Dog Henry Holcomb (the dog of Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb) announced the coffee shop was open on Twitter and showed his support for Pupcups, also known as Puppuccinos.

“There’s been a lot of anticipation of Starbucks from everyone at the Civic Center, the city and all of the downtown businesses. They’ve been waiting for us to open. I think everyone’s excited that we’re now open. Today’s opening day,” said Harold Mirambell, manager of the DoubleTree.

As pictured above, the first customer in line was Henry Holcomb with his mom, Indiana First Lady Janet Holcomb.
