It's no secret that New York runs on coffee, and thankfully, we've got some of the world's best coffee shops and caffeinated events to fuel up at. Heck, even 7-Eleven tried to get in on the game with a specific blend made just for the city (spoiler alert: not good). To celebrate National Coffee Day tomorrow, here are six awesome ways to get your caffeine fix for free around the city.
Birch Coffee: Lactose intolerant java lovers can stop by any of the shop's four locations tomorrow from 7 to 10am for a a free Lactaid latte, mixing locally-roasted coffee with lactose-free milk.
Eataly: Beat the afternoon slump at the Lavazza Caffé in Mario Batali's massive food hall. From 1 to 3pm, get a free 8 oz drip coffee with any purchase from the Gran Bar.
The Tuscan Gun Officine Alimentari: Rub shoulders with stars Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos (Cooking Channel's Extra Virgin) at their Windsor Terrace Italian joint from 8am to noon. They’ll be serving complimentary cups of Lavazza coffee in both cold brew and espresso shots as well as sweet pastries for snacking.
Randolph Beer: Geek out over the gastropub's system of 48 draft lines, which includes one dedicated solely to iced coffee. They'll be tapping that black gold free for all lunchtime diners tomorrow.
Zaro's: The bakery will offer a gratis cup of hot or iced coffee with any purchase.
