Caribou Coffee is 15 years old today! I crawled out before dawn and ventured out into the zero-degree weather and made my way over to the very first Caribou at 44th & France Avenue for my morning fix. Carmen (on the left) is a barista at my regular Caribou where I write most of the time. She told me yesterday about the event and I had to check it out. They were giving away free Timberwolves tickets to the first 100 customers. There will be events there all day; the mayor will be there, balloons for the kids, and from 2:00 – 4:00 you can get 15% off all drinks, just mention that it’s their anniversary.
I got there in time to take a picture of the whole gang with the banner before the morning rush.
