  • Clear your bladder: The 31-ounce Trenta is a single ounce shy of the Big Gulp.

Starbucks fans will soon be able to show just how much they love the iced tea and coffee drinks from the Seattle chain. Starting next month, Starbucks stores in California will are unleashing the Trenta, a new 31-ounce cup a hair shy of 7-Eleven's Big Gulp.

Reuters is reporting that Starbucks will roll out the Trenta nationwide in May, though 14 states are getting an early jump this month. California stores are slated to roll out the Trenta on Feb. 1. Reuters:

The new size will be available only for iced coffee, iced tea and iced tea lemonade drinks in the United States. The Trenta is 7 ounces larger than Starbucks' "Venti" cup for iced drinks, which currently is its largest size on offer.
Trenta drinks will cost 50 cents more than Venti ones, Starbucks says. It adds that the bump-up to 31 ounces will add fewer than 90 calories to the total load, though with sweetened drinks the additional calories will come in at fewer than 230. Starbucks says the new size is a response to customer demand.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
