Coming soon to a Starbucks near you: beer, wine and small plates.

A Starbucks in Calabasas applied for a permit to sell beer and wine last week, according to Eater LA, making it the second Starbucks to apply for an alcohol permit in California after Coronado. No word on when the new alcohol-selling could commence at the Calabasas location at 26531 Agoura Rd. It sounds like ahandful of other locations in Southern California could add booze to their menus, but they haven't been announced yet.

Starbucks has already begun selling beer and wine at locations in the Pacific Northwest. The beer goes for $5, while the wine goes for $7 to $9. The company is rolling out small plates and other savory items on the menu to pair with the booze.
