For Some, Happiness Can Come in a Cup

I admit: I love coffee. Maybe you do, too. So, I thought I'd assist all of our wallets with this little piece of information/happiness.

That means from 3-5 p.m., you can get half-priced frappucinos. 

The Happy Hour is daily through May 15.

Now that is what I classify as good news.
