Starbucks Coffee Cup Doodles; Pitmasters' Picnic in Dallas

BUCKSWIRE—Generally Starbucks cups are simply adorned with a mermaid logo and your name misspelled, but the coffee giant would like you to try a little harder than that in their White Cup Contest. Entries will be gathered on Instagram and Twitter via the hashtag #whitecupcontext; the winner might get their design produced as a reusable coffee mug. [Starbucks via Starbucks Melody]
