What do you order at StarBucks? and restaurant secrets unveiled

More than a year ago I wrote a similar post about Starbucks Coffee Speak and asked for your help in decoding the strange code. That post received the highest ever comments for a post of mine. Today I am sitting in a StatBucks drinking regular coffee "short" - yes you heard it right - Starbucks has a size called "short" that is available on demand and not mentioned on the menu. I love this size because I don't waste any of it and gives me the right amount of caffeine I need. Just to prove I am/not a cheapskate "short" costs only about 10 to 15 cents less than Tall. I love Starbucks for doing this. I am also reminded of the "Gambler's Special" I read about in Rohit Bhargava's book Personality Not Included which is available at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas - a nice meal for $7.77 (See yelp review) and wonder if there are other secrets that I don't know about in restaurants. My Question to you is : a) Know of any specials in restaurants that is not on the menu? b) What do you order in StarBucks? (Please use additional sheets of paper if the comment field is not enough :) )
