While a doller makes me holler, something FREE makes me positively swoon (my mantra: where there’s free, there’s me.) And amazingly, free drinks can by found at World Market.
Do not be distracted by the hanging, brightly colored tchotchkes or the animals cleverly fashioned out of felt/twigs (how do they do that?). Steel your resolve and make it past the seasonal and/or exotic food items (well, maybe one trip down the cookie aisle). Make it all the way to the back, and there in a little nook you will find two drink dispensers, one for coffee and one for tea. There are little cups available, sugar and cream, even drink stirrers. The flavors vary all the time; I’ve tried their chocolate mate tea and the ginger peach (both are pretty good). It’s a free-drink dream come true.
