Free Coffee at Yew with just one tweet

Diana Chan February 18, 2011 Food for Thought

Wouldn’t it be great if someone just gave you free coffee before you go to work? (The brewed coffee at work so does not count). Yew Restaurant + Bar gives out free hot beverages in the morning if you can catch their tweet.

It all begins with a tweet. I saw this on Wednesday morning on my twitter feed. Since I usually spend $3 on a latte anyways, I thought I would just go to save a few bucks. Sure enough @floyvr and I went together! I work a block away, so I did not intentionally trek my way there for just a coffee.

If you have a twitter account, you can follow them at @FSVancouver and they usually use the hash tag #YEWyvr if it’s about Yew. They do the free hot beverages one a week, you just need to keep your eyes open.

At first I felt super super super weird just going in and getting a free drink, seriously….asian much?

Apparently a lot of people do it, so don’t feel like you are cheap by doing so. All you need to do is walk toward the bar and mention the tweet to get your free drink.

This applies to any hot drink…not just coffee.

Walking back to the office, I got my handy latte beside me!

Since I usually get a latte at Starbucks, I really got use to the taste. The latte was strong and had a bold flavour. This really reminded me of the lattes I had in Europe. Since this was stronger than what I would normally have, it definitely woke up for the majority of the day.

They also have milk and sugar to modify your drink. I probably should have added a bit too.
