As the caffeinated panda, I am a tiny bit embarrassed that I didn’t know today was national coffee day until the internet told me so this morning. After all, every day is coffee day for me. How would I know such random facts if it weren’t for the internet?
If you’re looking for a place to score a free cup of joe; Caribou Coffee, Thornton’s, Krispy Kreme, and 7-11 are all giving free hand outs. Unfortunately, coffee powerhouses Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts will not be participating. I guess they’re figuring people will still dish out a few bucks to buy their brews. Snobs. If you’re looking for something less corporate with a lot more character, be sure to check out my list of D.C. coffee shops. So go ahead, be a great American and drink yourself awake!
