A Thanksgiving tradition: free coffee served outside at the closed Goodbye Blue Monday

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.

Yesterday when I stopped by, Jim Crow, Jim Gleason, and Jose Rodriguez were the beauties on duty.

Where did they get the coffee? Caribou!

    Perhaps next year someone could buy ground coffee from Goodbye Blue Monday and brew it at their home that morning to bring down. Just a thought. Lovely gesture none the less.

    Confirmation: there will again be coffee served on the sidewalk in front of the Blue Monday on Thanksgiving morning, starting at 7 am.
