Starbucks has announced that it will soon be bringing alcoholic beverages, such as beer and wine, along with some more gourmet food options to thousands of its stores around the United States.

In an attempt to boost sales and bring in an evening crowd, some Starbucks have already begun to serve alcohol, with thousands more to begin soon. Some of the edible treats the company plans to sell at these alcohol-serving locations are bacon-wrapped dates with a balsamic glaze, parmesan crusted chicken skewers, and truffle macaroni and cheese.

Not all locations will have these new beverages and food options in place, but if you’d like to sample the choices before it comes to a location near you, there are stores in Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and Portland.

This is not the first time the famous coffee brand has expanded its beverage offerings beyond coffee. After acquiring tea retailer Teavana back in 2013, Starbucks opened the Teavana Fine Teas + Tea Bar in New York City.
