Airport-based barista bants.

The very worst kind of airport-based bants, in all fairness.

This morning.

The Irish Times reports:

The prospect of another new Starbucks outlet opening in Dublin city centre has prompted a number of cafes and coffee shops to offer free hot drinks to customers on Tuesday.”

“There are 50 Starbucks outlets in Dublin, according to the company’s website, while another is expected to open soon in a former recruiters’ office on Crampton Quay.

“…Coffee shop operators believe the area is already well served and Ciaran Hogan, who runs The Clockwork Door on Wellington Quay, organised the free coffee initiative after receiving “confirmation” another Starbucks was coming.”

Meanwhile, Today FM reports the cafés offering free drinks are:

The Clockwork Door

Coco Brew

Il Fornaio Enoteca

Gallaher and Co

The man found dead outside Starbucks café on Westmoreland Street, Dublin at the weekend was not homeless, as we reported without verification.

The body of Jed Eddison, 30, of Grangecon, Co Wicklow was discovered at 7.30am on Sunday.

According to The Irish Times: [Jed] ‘had been driven from his home by his mother into Dublin city on Friday.’

We are sorry for any distress our post caused.
