It's the holidays, which means shopping for presents, baking cookies, attending parties, and surviving with coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. Thankfully, it looks like your coffee-fueled survival is about to get a little easier and cheaper, because Starbucks is handing out totally free drinks this week as part of a nationwide celebration.
Starbucks knows that despite how joyous the season can be, it can also be exhausting, so it's throwing more than 1,000 pop-up parties at Starbucks stores across the country and giving away free tall handcrafted espresso beverages to all in attendance. And by "handcrafted espresso beverages," the company means anything espresso-related: Toasted White Chocolate Mochas, Caramel Macchiatos, Iced Eggnog Lattes, basic Americanos -- all are fair game. Haven't had your holiday drink fix yet? Now's the time to get it.
The parties will randomly appear -- or pop up -- beginning on Friday, December 27, through Tuesday, December 31, from 1-2pm (local time). The locations change daily, so you'll have to see if your local 'bucks is participating. You can track the pop-ups by going to StarbucksPopUp.com, according to a spokesperson.
Another slight catch is that there's a limit of one free drink per person. But, hey, that's not so bad. Now, all you have to decide is what to order. Decisions decisions.
