Well actually, it is a partial reality.
Today in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, all Starbucks, Tim Horton’s and all cafes in general are closed due to a boil water advisory following a severe fall storm that struck the area two days ago.
All Starbucks stores closed within a large city like Vancouver.
In order to do this any other way (other than a variety of other obvious disasters…) one would have to turn the clock back prior to about 1988, in Vancouver, when there were ZERO Starbucks and virtually no specialty coffee shops (outside the cool, ethnic neighborhoods of Commercial Drive that is…)
Call it surreal.
Enjoy it while you can.
