September 29th - National Coffee Day
This is an important day indeed, a day devoted to the OG of energy drinks. Last year, coffee shops across the nation took part in the celebration, from Dunkin' Donuts to Starbucks, and we're betting this year will be no different. Keep an eye out for great coffee deals coming your way this year. Also, you might consider taking this day to do good through your coffee love to good by contributing to Starbucks' charity that donates a coffee tree to farmers in need for every bag of coffee sold in stores. You can also help cut down on waste by purchasing a reusable coffee cup that you can take to coffee shops, like the Joco Cup, which we absolutely love and featured on Earth Day.
So there you have it--breakfast food is clearly calling to you this month. Don't resist. And if nothing else, just watch more clips of pancake artistry. Because it literally never gets old.
