Free Starbucks on March 15th!
So, I was sent this link announcing free coffee at Starbucks at slashfood.com on Thursday, March 15th. There is a car angle here, trust me: For instance you probably need to DRIVE to get there. Or you will probably drink the free cup while you are IN YOUR CAR. See? I told you there was a car angle.
So anyhow, regardless of how you get there, plan to stop by your local Starbucks between 10am and 12 noon on Thursday, March 15th, 2007. During that time, Starbucks will be giving away free Tall (12-ounce) cups of coffee to anyone who drops by. As part of its 2nd annual Coffee Break, Starbucks Coffee Masters clad in black aprons will be present in all company-operated and licensed Starbucks stores in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Greater China during each of the coffee breaks to kick off the company's spring brewing sale and to answer any questions you might have about the coffee or coffee brewing. I would limit the questions. Something tells me they are likely to be quite busy.
Last year, many stores used the coffee break period to sample some of their pastries out to customers waiting in line, as well. It was said that Starbucks expected to serve 500,000 free cups of coffee on its first annual Coffee Break.
For the location of the nearest Starbucks, you can look at their official website or text your zip code to "MYSBUX" (697289) for a return of the three nearest stores.
Also, if you're a true Starbucks fiend, you might want to visit the unofficial Starbucks Blog at You won't find much about cars there, but I have no doubt you can get a Starbucks info fix.
