While most national food holidays are pretty much meaningless, we can always get behind one that gets us caffeinated—for free. To celebrate National Coffee Day on Friday, September 29, chains around the country are handing out java on the house. Here's where you need to head to get buzzed and fuel your TGIF happy dance.
It's still up for debate whether America truly runs on Dunkin' but a BOGO deal like this may seal the deal: Buy any medium, large or extra-large coffee and you'll get a free medium coffee in return.
Coffee will be flowing all day at Wawa convenience stores, where the beverage of all sizes will be on the house. The chain expects to give away more than 2 million cups of free coffee.
