Now that Borders Bookstore is shutting down its locations, Barnes & Noble is the undisputed king of big-chain bookstores. But even Barnes isn't resting on its new position–they're giving out a free cup of Starbucks coffee this Saturday.
Of course, there's a small catch: Spend a few minutes chatting it up with the Nook representative in the store tomorrow. You know Nook, right? Barnes & Noble's late entry into the e-reader game? Learn about the color touchscreen, check out Sudoku and Pandora Internet radio options, or test out its wi-fi. Heck, you might even be inclined to purchase one.
Either way, there's a hot cuppa waiting to be poured by the barista when you're done*. And with tomorrow's forecast to bring record-low temperatures to Southern California, it just might be worth it to hear some spiel for some liquid warmth afterward.
* Can't promise they'll have the Clover brewing system, though. . . . Locate your nearest location at www.barnesandnoble.com.
