There are special promotions out there, to sober you up after all the green beer, maybe? Maybe it’s coincidence. McDonald’s is giving away free cups of coffee, and so is Burgerville (I’ve had ’em both, and they suffice).  Can’t say the exact dates, but you don’t have to buy anything to get your brew!

And speaking of McDonald’s, they regularly offer a senior coffee for anything from 50 cents to one dollar, depending upon the store’s management  (Helps us stay awake when we’re on the road and feeling frugal).  Just don’t fall for the fast food, like I have done.  Shopping? Join IKEA and indulge in a free cup every time you come in.

Note:  These coffees are not all gourmet, but what true caffeine-lover can always hold out for that?  No snobs here
