Goodbye Blue Monday is closed on Thanksgiving but for several years now, a gang of morning regulars has been serving up free hot coffee to customers who stop by, thinking that the coffeehouse is open.

Northfield’s version of Captain America and Billy (Jose Rodriguez and Charlie Kyte) were revved up on caffeine in front of the GBM yesterday morning.
