You Say It’s Your Birthday!

TUESDAY, JUNE 5TH: Golly, Starbucks just won’t stop till they get their Frappuccino-flavored fingers into everything, will they? Today, the Pacific Northwestern giant has paired up with Sir Paul McCartney to release his new album, Memory Almost Full, as a “Global Listening Event” (meep!). This means 10,000 stores across 20 countries will be playing the album at the same time while you pay your 12 bucks for a cup of tarted-up coffee. (For the record, we always thought that one-legged chick looked a bit mean …. ) Meanwhile, up at the always-dependable 92nd Street Y, Ian McEwan (just like Ian McKellen, but without the gorgeous boyfriend and the “Sir”) will be in the house for a chat with fellow author Colum McCann. Ladies, start practicing how to say “raaather.”

[Global listening event for Paul McCartney, Starbucks, 156 Columbus Avenue, noon to 2 p.m., http://www.starbucks.com; Ian McEwan, 92 Street Y, Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street, 8 p.m., www.92y.org.]
