Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day! Tell Patch where you get your caffeinated brew of choice.
Coffee has become more essential than just being "the best part of waking up." National Coffee Day, celebrated Sept. 29 this year, is another reason to grab that cup o' joe you love so much. Although local franchises, including Starbucks and McDonalds, aren't giving away free coffee Saturday, they're still serving up your favorite brew. Where do you like to go for your favorite venti no-whip nonfat white mocha? Or just black iced coffee? Maybe lightly sweetened? However you like it, share your favorite local stop that's maybe more convenient on the way out to work, or that cozy hang-out for a quick ceramic mug-full of the house brew of the day. Go ahead. Be a coffee conneisseur, or even a casual I-need-caffeine partaker. Vote in the poll…

Customers at Qdoba restaurants across the country, and here in West County, get free food on Tuesday, if they don't mind a little PDA. Both the Town and Country Qdoba in Town and Country Crossing and the Manchester Qdoba near the Manchester Highlands are participating in the buy one, get one free for a kiss deal.
