Franklin Avenue tips us to free Coffee Bean right now: "Get yerself to The Coffee Bean this evening between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. The coffee chain is handing out 12 oz. holiday-themed drinks for free—including their Peppermint ice blended, which I'm all about." Desserty drinks thinly-veiled as coffee for all! At least at participating stores, which it inconveniently does not outline on the Coffee Bean site. [Franklin Avenue]
