Apparently, the First Mate of the Pequod Opened a Bar in Chicago-O’Hare Airport

While traveling through Chicago-O’Hare today, I noticed a sign advertising the food vendors in the airport. One of them was a joint called “Starbuck’s.” Could it be that Starbuck, the first mate of the _Pequod_ in _Moby Dick_ opened up an eating establishment in Chicago? Perhaps it’s just an establishment with his namesake. Anyway, I held up a cup of coffee from Starbucks for juxtaposition.
