Have you ever set your alarm across the room to help you wake up? How about setting up an elaborate series of obstacles and barriers on the way to the blaring torture machine? I'm sure we're not the only ones hitting the snooze.
Fantasizing about superior caffeine delivery systems has become a morning ritual. Sure Panther Coffee's cold brew packs a wallop, but we're in serious need of rocket fuel here. Imagining a world with coffee IVs and caffeinated soap (this actually exists, it's time we ordered some) helps dull the morning blues, but we need something to look forward to.
Nothing cheers us up more than finding the city's tasty treats for the week. Ready to chug and chew the weekday blues away? We've got the top 5 places your mouth should be this week served up fresh.
