In the end, it was McDreamy over bikinis. A group led by Patrick Dempsey, star of Grey's Anatomy, won last night's auction to buy the rights to Tully's Coffee. Dempsey's group went head-to-head with mighty Starbucks and bikini barista stand Baristas Coffee Co. Dempsey's group agreed to pay $9.15 million for Seattle-based coffee chain.
Dempsey is making victory rounds at Tully's around the Seattle area today if you want a close-up look at Dr. McDreamy.
Dempsey stopped at the downtown Tully's coffee at 2001 Western Ave. this morning for TV interviews before heading over to Bellevue to visit the Clyde Hill location at 8805 Points Dr NE before a stop at the Lincoln Square Tully's at 700 Bellevue Way NE.
