Free Coffee, a New Brunch and Death & Co
Kim Kardashian can’t break the weekend.
Batman had the Batmobile for fighting crime. The Ghostbusters had Ecto-1 for busting ghosts. And now Lavazza has a truck turned mobile café for pouring gratis Italian coffee on the streets of Boston through next week. Heroes, all of them.

—A drink with espresso vodka, cream and vanilla with a Big Lebowski–inspired name.
