This appeared in City and State yesterday morning:
"9:30 a.m. – New York City Councilman Daniel Dromm and state Sen. Jose Peralta call on Starbucks to clean up their garbage, in front of Starbucks, 37th Avenue and 79th Street, Queens."
Here is some of the press coverage:

(You'll notice Peralta didn't show up.)
I received this e-mail:
