Where to get Free Coffee on National Coffee Day 2014

It’s always something, and national food and drink holidays are no exception. While seemingly silly and superfluous it’s a public relations dream come true. How some of these commemorative days come into being is ironically a serious process with the President of the United States declaring a day of tribute by proclamation, [after some pretty heavy lobbying]. Petitions are setup by voters and trade associations to pay tribute to a social cause. The Senate, state legislatures, governors, and mayors have the ability to proclaim special observance days as well. After the observance day has been proclaimed, it is up to the lobbyists/petitioners to promote it to the public. Each month we post the list of National Food and Drink days. If this -hail-to-the-food-day is new to you, and the first you’ve heard of it, here is September’s list, you can check out what you missed, and to get a leg up on the future, click here to check out October’s round up of culinary and libation celebrations.

Monday September 29 is National Coffee Day and a few well known chains are pouring free java; some no strings attached, just walk in, and get your free cup, others, you’ll have to pay to play.
