Couple of interesting coffee stories

Here’s a novel idea:
If you find yourself in Sydney, Australia, you can get a free coffee in the month of June from 9-11 am at the Metro St. James. There’s a little catch, though. You have to kiss. Not the barristas but you come in with the one you love and kiss. A real kiss – they can tell if it’s a fake.

Another news item:
If you are in Fitchburg, Wisconsin this Saturday, you can have “Coffee with a Cop.”
