TRENTON — There's two chances to get free coffee during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Late night drivers heading to-or-from the Jersey Shore will be treated to a free cup of coffee at the Farley Service Area between midnight and 5 a.m. early Saturday and Sunday

“Each year we offer free coffee to late-night travelers as our way of saying thanks and helping them to stay alert after their busy days during the first holiday of the summer season,” Gary Reinhart, senior director of Motorway Operations for HMSHost, the food and beverage operator of the service area.

It's the fifth year in a row free coffee has been available at the service area that serves both the east and westbound sides.

Wawa celebrated the Friday opening of its newest store on Route 28 in Bridgewater with free coffee until Sunday, June 4.

The store also hosted a hoagie building contest. Members of the Bridgewater Township Police, Finderne Fire Co., and Finderne First Aid and Rescue Squad faced off to see who can build the most hoagies in three minutes in the traditional Wawa way.

The Bridgewater store is the 12th new Wawa store to open in 2017 with locations scheduled to open in Lindenwold and Ewing this summer. 75 existing stores are also being remodeled.
