There's a nonsensical bit of business in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that could well apply to a certain contemporary political trend.

Behind the unassuming facade of your daily coffee-slinger may be a battle-hardened competitor. Once a month, baristas from around the city gather to compete in Thursday Night Throwdowns (TNT) to determine who has the best latte in the land. Usually, TNT takes place on the last Thursday of the month, but due to the holidays will be held tonight at West Philly's Lovers and Madmen. Think of it like the March Madness of latte-making: Each barista has three minutes of time to prep their espresso and milk and one chance to pour.

The 76ers must pull off a serious trick: They have to forget their terrible end-of-season play and somehow believe they can beat the Miami Heat in a seven-game playoff series. After securing their playoff position two weeks ago, the Sixers lost five of their final six regular-season games, including Wednesday night's finale at home against the lowly Detroit Pistons. The Sixers ended the regular season with a 41-41 record. Combo guard Lou Williams is struggling to return after suffering a strained right hamstring, and swingman Andre Iguodala missed the final two regular-season games with right knee tendinitis.

The well-traveled Ralph Kane and Jamie Kelly spent recent summers in Southwest Harbor, Maine, working in the kitchen of a cafe that by day is called Eat-a-Pita and at night becomes the fancier Cafe 2. Gradually they become enthralled with Eat-a-Pita but soured on the seasonal nature of life in that part of Maine. "We thought [Eat-a-Pita] would thrive here," said Kelly, 30, a graduate of Drexel University's hospitality program who met her buddy Kane, 32, when both worked at Fork in Old City.

Among the breakfast choices this week at the Starbucks near Murray's Deli in Bala Cynwyd were a platter of come-hither apple fritters and tall green tea lattes. You could find the same combo a few miles away in the city, at the Starbucks across from Whole Foods at 20th and Callowhill. The only difference was that in the city the calories were posted on the menu board (as required by recent changes to the city health code); in the suburbs, they were not. And what that told you (or didn't tell you)

Marty Wolner has a mission: to educate Philadelphians in the pleasures of skinny lattes, espresso shakes and mocha decaf cappuccino. "I have a tremendous passion for coffee," said Wolner, 30, owner of Caffe Primo in Bustleton, the first drive-through espresso stand in Philadelphia, and possibly the first on the East Coast. "I did a lot of checking. Apparently the closest one is in Ohio," said the young entrepreneur, who previously worked as a radio broadcaster and, more recently, as an insurance salesman.

Doug Collins calls it "rocket fuel. " It's the equivalent of bolting a propeller to the back of a Ferrari, but every morning Collins drinks a four-shot latte with three packets of Sweet'n Low. The baristas at his City Avenue Starbucks - women who, by the way, believe "Coach Collins" is the best thing to happen to the 76ers in decades - identify this as a "quad grande, three-Sweet'n-Low latte" and grimace when thinking about the taste and intensity...

Howard Berkson won't fill your tires, and he won't clean your windshield. But from his cart between the gasoline pumps at a BP station, next to a display of Quality motor oils, he'll concoct a caffe latte that should keep your motor revving until lunchtime. Yup, this is Seattle, once known for its quality of life, rainy skies and the Space Needle. Now famous for - more than anything else - upscale coffee drinks. Here, in the city that proclaims itself the specialty coffee capital of the United States, one is never more than a couple of blocks from a cup of espresso or its milkier alternatives: caffe mocha, caffe latte or cappuccino.

You don't have to be Juan Valdez to figure out that the specialty-coffee business is as sweet as a double-foam cappuccino dusted with cinnamon sugar. Starbucks dot the urban landscape like coffee beans ripening in the sun, and gas-station convenience stores hawk ready-made lattes right next to the Maxwell House. But to get a real idea of just how hot things have gotten for the folks who serve up $5.4 billion a year in espresso, latte, cappuccino and the rest, you had to be at the Convention Center last weekend.

IT'S OFFICIALLY fall. And for many, the seasonal change has nothing to do with the weather or a date on the calendar. Fall arrives when Starbucks is once again offering Pumpkin Spice Latte. Never mind that the iconic latte doesn't contain any pumpkin. The signature flavoring is all in the spice blend. And it works. Starbucks has sold more than 200 million of the drinks since its introduction in 2003. The exact blend varies. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Ginger. Allspice. Perhaps a little clove.

Starbucks Coffee, a corporate icon of success and style since the 1990s, is confronting a legendary warrior for labor rights from the 1920s. The Wobblies, otherwise known as the Industrial Workers of the World, a leftist labor organization founded in 1905 and now based in Philadelphia, has taken initial steps toward unionizing a Starbucks Corp. coffee shop in New York City - the first such effort in the United States. If it succeeds, the group could score a notable public-relations victory for the labor movement.

It's been a well-caffeinated year since Starbucks splashed onto the turf of the traditional Viennese coffeehouse, with its silver trays, heavy cream and tuxedoed indifference. There are eight new Starbucks outposts in the heart of European coffee culture, and Viennese wags are talking about the "Starbucks effect," which to Christian Wurmdobler, writer for the city magazine Falter, means "you can finally go into a coffeehouse and order a latte without them scowling at you. " There's more spillover: The quality of coffee in traditional coffeehouses has improved, says Wurmdobler, who rarely visits the 1,900 or so Viennese institutions, because, "contrary to popular belief, the coffee is not very good.
