The new Target has delayed a vote on the plan.
The architect and an engineer working on the proposed mixed-use development on the corner of Fort Couch and Washington roads presented a detailed plan to the Upper St. Clair Planning Commission Thursday night. The Siena at St. Clair proposal, located where the Consol Energy headquarters used to be, is comprised of 42 percent non-residential space, 32 percent residential space and 26 percent open space. The non-residential space includes a proposed Whole Foods Market along Washington Road. More than half of the parking spots would be underneath the grocery store. No other tenants were revealed during Thursday's presentation, however, developers showed plans for a drive-through coffee shop. "It's very early on," said engineer Dale Earl. …

Get your caffeine on and celebrate with a free cup of coffee.
If the first words out of your mouth every morning are, “I’ll have a large coffee”—or if you can’t even speak until after you’ve had your java fix—there's a national holiday created especially for you. America will put staunch tea drinkers to shame on National Coffee Day on Sept. 29, when coffee fiends can rejoice and celebrate their beloved coffee bean with free brew from national chains. Coffee was first brought to America in the mid-1600s in a shipment en route to “New Amsterdam,” now known as New York, according to the National Coffee Association. We have that shipment and the Boston Tea Party to thank for turning the nation into coffee drinkers. McDonald's restaurants along the East Coast have been giving away free 12-ounce coffees …

The Bebout Road closure—and Arrowhead Trail bridge construction—is not affecting nearby shops' hours.
Bebout Road, at the intersection of Valley Brook, closed on Tuesday. The closure will continue for the next several months while the Arrowhead Trail bridge is constructed. All businesses on Valley Brook Road are remaining open and operating on normal bussiness hours. Peters Township Councilman Jim Berquist said he feels for the businesses on Valley Brook Road. "I believe the good people of Peters Township will rally support around a good local business, such as Farmhouse Coffee—trying to compete with the Evil Empire (Starbucks)," he said. "It is a David versus Goliath story and hopefully it will not be the demise of retail on this section of Valley Brook Road. That goes for My Big Fat Greek Gyro, The Cob Collection, etc." Do you own a …

It’s the blend we’ve all been waiting for.
Is coffee a major part of your morning routine, or perhaps your lifestyle? As a regular "coffice" goer and java drinker, I tend to lean toward more mild roasts—for the taste. Now essentially immune to caffeine, I sip a cuppa joe all day, but I'm quite particular. If I'm working from a Starbucks, I never seem to order a plain cup of coffee. Typically, it's a non-fat latte of some sort or Tazo Tea. A bitter Venti Pike Place Roast isn't my go-to. Recently, the Starbucks gods heard my cries, and maybe yours? Starbucks Blonde Roast debuted in locations across the country Tuesday. The company said it created the roast to meet the needs of the 54 million coffee drinkers in the U.S. who say they prefer a lighter roast coffee. It's subtle, mellow …
