Free stuff? Good. Free stuff after voting in the most important election of our lifetimes? Even better.
Yep, I'll be in line for a free 12 oz. ("tall") coffee tomorrow at Starbucks. Perhaps at several locations.
And maybe, I'll also head to Krispy Kreme for a free star-shaped donut. And Ben & Jerry's for a free scoop.
Meanwhile, Thrillist has put together a list of other freebies or discounts tomorrow. Just flash your "I Voted" sticker:
"Healthy" Vote: O!Burger (8593 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood; 310.854.0234)
Buy a burger at this all-natural hole-in-the-wall and get a free order of fries or organic cookies -- whose organic crumbs will be telltale evidence that you voted for Nader.
Drinky Vote #1: Colorado Wine Co (2114 Colorado Blvd, Pasadena; 323.478.1985)
Take 50% off any of the 6-7 whites and reds this small shop'll be pouring -- perfect if you recently took 50% off your bank account.
Rockin' Vote: Amoeba Music (6400 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood; 323.245.6400)
The leviathan music store's handing out coupons good for $2 off anything -- a new cd, used vinyl, a poster from the Milli Vanilli show you hit on election night '88... Use your discount on Orrin Hatch's How His Glory Shines, and $2 will be taken off your soul.
Dessert Vote: Tart (115 S Fairfax, Mid-Wilshire; 323.556.2608
Tart's offering a free dessert to compliment discounted drinks and a special election menu that includes the likes of a caramelized onion, roasted red pepper & aioli "Bailout Burger". No purchase necessary for the dessert, but cheapskates run the risk of the waiter giving them "Bailout Eyes."
Lookin' Good Vote: Cristophe Salon (348 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills; 310.274.0851)
This Beverly Hills salon'll give you 50%-off gift certificates, and on-the-spot services you need (haircut), services you don't (coloring), and services you claim you don't (waxing).
Drinky Vote #2: Pitfire
At all the Pitfire pizzeria (in Downtown and North Hollywood)
The Downtown and North Hollywood outposts of this pizzeria mini-chain are offering your choice of either Edison Ale or an "Obama/McCain" limited-edition soda -- so basically, vote for Edison.
Lunchy Vote: Pink Taco (At Westfield Century City: 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Century City; 310.789.1000)
Get a shot of well tequila and 3 free pink tacos -- a Clintonian deal hearkening back to the freewheeling days of Election '96.
