Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Hump day just got a heck of a lot better. Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is celebrating their 50 year anniversary tomorrow, and in its honor they are doling out free cups of their house brewed anniversary blend coffee and tea.The company, which was a staple of our high school hangouts in Southern California, was started in Brentwood in 1963. (Starbucks came shortly after in Seattle in 1971, for the record. And their fraps pale in comparison to the crack powder-laden Ice Blendeds.)

The freebies will be going on all day tomorrow, but store hours vary. Only locations in Arizona and California will be participating.

And if you're on the prowl for other gratis goodies, be sure to keep an eye out for Yogurtland's free froyo day and IHOP's pancake giveaways coming up next month.
