    Yes, both regular and decaf!

    Total pit stops: 6.

    And I'm amused that a thread which started as a plea for more information on Maryland and DC (it's right there in the subject line, folks!), because there was already so much about Virginia, has quickly attracted so many posts about Virginia pit stops.

    Sounds like Eastern Market was the winner for coffee -- Peregrine was there with hot and iced! So good! (and yes, there was cream)

    Whole Foods Bethesda

    Services: Freshbikes has air and lube
    Raffles: Freshbikes has an instant raffle for registered users. I won mints.
    Food: no free food, but they have $3 burgers, $1 hot dogs, and $1 sweet potato chips (made on the premises) I got an extra burger for free by being there when they were closing.

    College Park: six boxes of Shopper's colossal donuts, about six dozen fresh bagels and cream cheese from Bagel Place, coffee, bars of all sorts from MOM's, Oreos, water bottles, nice plastic cups from the City, raffle prizes, CP Bikes doing maintenance, and at least one city council member to actually listen to All These Cyclists. Oh, and my orangeshirt. Best. Pitstopswagassortment. Evah.

    Hyattsville: closing as I arrived; basic fruit and pamphlets, but switched out my XL shirt from CP (some of the Maryland stops got a weird run of sized, it seems) for one that would fit better.

    Met Branch: basic fruit, B2WD bottles, and a BicycleSPACE mechanic (Will) who gawked at Val the Schwinn/Brn's Indestructable Arkel Panniers.

    Noma: bagels (not as nice as the CP ones, but still not bad), WABAfolk (yay!), and a Noma spatula. Seriously, a spatula. That's...actually, it's a pretty nice spatula, come to think of it. Oh, and I categorically refuse to do that silly intercap thing in "Noma."

    Freedom Plaza: Shoot, place had just about closed when I rolled in; take a breather with Phil/Shane/Greg, offer congrats, and head to the MLK window office.

    Yep! Whole Foods is having a sale on meat next week--pay $40 for $50 worth of meat. So we can buy two lots of that. With the gift card I won, it will cost us only $5 for $100 worth of meat! My wife and I drink a lot of coffee, so the three pounds of Starbucks coffee will definitely get used. I ate all day, and came home with a huge bag of swag. So I'm not complaining at all!
