coffee.jpgAccording to a report from Bay City News, lots of you are hitting Starbucks with mugs from home in order to get a free cup coffee today. From their hilarious report:

Ken Huang didn’t know today was free coffee day at Starbucks for customers who bring their own cups.

Huang was one of roughly 25 customers waiting to get their caffeine fix at a Starbucks at on Market Street in San Francisco at about 10:30 a.m.

If he had known, he wouldn’t have trudged a block up Market Street to avoid the gigantic line at his regular Starbucks just to find another long line at the Fox Plaza store.

Huang did not have his own cup today.

“I would have brought the biggest cup ever,” he said.

How about you, have you brought your “biggest cup” to the ‘bucks? How were the lines?
