For caffeine junkies, today is probably just short of a holy day – September 29 is the yearly observance of National Coffee Day. With a little bit of advance planning, Kansas Citians could probably have spent the entire morning gulping down free java by making the rounds of Caribou Coffee, Krispy Kreme, 7-11, and Parisi all handing out freebies. Roasterie Cafes combined good coffee with good works by giving out free coffee in return for donations to Harvesters.
But what was that? You'd rather have a cocktail? Never fear, you can eat your cake and have it, too. Why make a decision when you can simply indulge in a delicious coffee cocktail?
