Piper's Alley Starbucks, now with last call
Really, in the grand scheme of things, it's a minor, minor point, somewhere between apocalyptic and not-very-apocalyptic-at-all: The 24-hour Starbucks in Piper's Alley, the large, busy one that hugs the corner of North Avenue and Wells Street in Old Town, is no longer a 24-hour Starbucks. Earlier this month, without ceremony, it pared back its hours, albeit slightly: It closes now at 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 1 a.m. the rest of the week. It opens daily at 5 a.m. Which means, each week, it's only closed for 26 hours.
