Starbucks is spreading some holiday friendliness. During the "10 Days of Cheer" customers can get a free tall espresso drink between 1 and 2 p.m. until January 2nd.

Starbucks' goal of its "Pop-Up Cheer Parties" is to help everyone ring in the new year with love in their hearts (at least for one hour a day). 100 new stores will be selected each day. No Iowa stores have been selected today (Tuesday) but make sure to check back between now and Monday, January 2nd, to get your free coffee.

Maybe a free drink will make you feel better about the barista writing the wrong name on your cup...
