It’s hot in here and NYC freebies are hotter this week. Monday get a buzz to celebrate CUPS app birthday. Starting today, download the CUPS app and get free coffee, specialty drinks, teas, hot or iced free at 15-20 participating locations each day for a week. They announce the day’s locations at 7am or you can look in the app. You don’t need a credit card or a plan. You can get one every 30 minutes until closing and I’m not responsible for what happens to your heart rate if you do. I got an iced EnergiTea from Alice’s Tea Cup to go which cooled me down on this hot day and I am going to try a Brazilian Iced Bahia Latte from O Café later. I heard about it here: http://www.theinfatuation.com/features/cups-app-giving-away-free-coffee-for-a-week-at-165-participating-cafes
